Lampe de Bureau

Jean Prouvé, 1930


Jean Prouvé designed the Lampe de Bureau, a small table lamp, as part of the functional furnishings for the halls of residence at the Cité Universitaire in Nancy. Constructed from bent sheet steel, it reflects the light rays and pleasantly illuminates the desk surface.

The powder-coated finish comes in several colours, which are derived from the original hues used by Prouvé, and the power cable is sheathed in a high-quality textile casing.
