inspired by MCL-R3 Ceiling Lamp
inspired by Serge Mouille

  • Iconic French design from 1958
  • Spectacular arms and shades
  • Constructed in iron and aluminium
  • Ceiling-mounted base

A stunning French icon, this ceiling lamp is a memorable piece from French designer Serge Mouille’s iconic series. Dramatic shapes and angles create a theatrical feel within the room, making this lamp as much a work of art as it is a source of illumination. Consisting of an iron stem and base that attaches to the ceiling, the main features of this piece are the iron curved arms of differing lengths and aluminium ‘chapeau’ (or ‘hat’) styled shades. All three arms are spectacularly positioned to target as much space as possible, adding a touch of practicality to a legendary design. With rotating shades, you can direct the light as desired. The entire piece is coated in a black matte lacquer, with only the interior of the shades finished in white to maximise the bulbs reflective qualities. Designed with the intention of supplying as much light as possible, this ceiling lamp would be a head turning centrepiece in any room.

We produce this iconic classic with a 61cm hang from the ceiling, whilst all three arms are of differing lengths at 85cm, 135cm and 110cm respectively.

Born in Paris in 1922, Serge Mouille attended the School of Applied Arts starting at just 13-years-old, where he learned the arts of silversmithing and metallurgy. At 15 he studied with famous silversmith Gabriel Lacroix and later gained his diploma in the subject. Changing his focus to lighting design, Mouille was commissioned by Jacques Adnet to create lighting designs in reaction to the complicated Italian designs that flooded the market in the 1950s. He produced his lighting by hand and during his lifetime was awarded with many prizes including the Charles Plumet Prize in 1955. The Hollywood actor Henry Fonda was so impressed with Mouille’s designs that he literally insisted that Mouille create a lamp for him, refusing to leave his premises until he agreed to carry out the commission. Mouille eventually returned to his first love, silversmithing and became director of the silversmith department at the School of Applied Arts.
