Mid Century Minimalist Design | The Serge Mouille Tripod Desk Lamp


Mid Century Modern Lamps are represented by famous lighting designers such as iconic lighting designer, Serge Mouille. He exhibited his well-known mid century design fixtures at the Société de Création des Modèles. His designs incorporate both fluorescence and incandescence. He added to his collection of mid century lighting fixtures until 1961.

Most famous for minimalistic designs, he preferred to work in black metal. His work brings strength and direction with maximum functionality to any part of a room. Using uniformly black painted metal materials, spot light fixtures within articulated structures illustrate the essential function of lighting through simplicity of form.

The Tripod Desk Lamp

The Tripod Desk Lamp is connected to nature by the shape of the shade taking the form of a moule or muscle shell. The lamp’s supporting structure is composed of slim yet elegant legs and the stem. All are simply curved and gracefully formed – not only a luminaire but also a peaceful focal point for the desk top.

Artistic Focus

Serge Mouille connects visual basics together for functionality, artistic focus and pure impact. His lamps attract attention like no other with a purity and simplicity that is the goal of minimalism. In short they will attract attention. For a special room, event or friend they express the deepest connection.

The question to ask is “Where should you put this extraordinary fixture – on your desk or on that of someone close to you?” We live in a world where we have stopped noticing objects and beauty. Serge Mouille uses his minimalistic approach to guide us back to a place where we continue to perceive.
