Serge Mouille continues his enormous popularity through his mid century modern lamps and deisign since his death in 1988 at the age of 66. The reason for the popularity of Serge is because of his excellent minimalist designs and the use of black or white paint on metal work, non-glare white paint on the interior of the shades, and the use of brass fittings when articulated arms are part of the design.
In 2002, Gueridon launched Serge Mouille Re-edition Lighting to the U.S. market. Through a website called Serge Mouille USA, and shared office and showroom space in Brooklyn, New York. The launch was a huge success and collectors of mid-century European Designs first go to Gueridon when looking for authentic, numbered Mouille re-edition that also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Part of the reason Mouille used clean geometric designs as found in his library pendant lighting, was as a contradiction to the popular mid-century production of clunky, and heavy Italian designs that had been popular until the mid-1900s. The popularity of his designs are testament to the reception of his dramatic designs.
Dramatic lighting is a must for a modern home. One way of making it dramatic is to place modern overhead lighting fixtures in unexpected places. One example is the use of Mouille’s Overhead Library Lighting in places such as the kitchen or the dining room.
In the kitchen this re-edition makes for wonderful task lighting, in the dining room it offers exciting ambient lighting. One reason that overhead lighting exists is that is a throwback to the times when gas lamps were used for overhead lighting
The library overhead lamps has other uses such as lighting works of arts, a drop pendant over a piano and more.
