Potence

Jean Prouvé, 1950

alt
The Potence wall lamp is one of Jean Prouvé's puristic masterpieces. Reduced to the essentials – a light bulb and a pivoting wall mount – the long swing arm wall light is made of powder-coated tubular steel with a oakwood handle. The lamp is controlled by a cord dimmer and comes equipped with a light bulb.

Product family
Potence
Designed as a pivoting wall lamp for the 'Maison Tropical', Potence is regarded as one of Jean Prouvé's puristic masterpieces. The fascination of this luminaire, which is over two metres long and dimmable, stems from the spareness of its materials and forms. Petite Potence has similar proportions to the larger model Potence, while its compact dimensions are ideally suited to smaller interiors.
