Jean Prouve: Potence Lamp
Vitra Design, Germany.

French designer Jean Prouve designed the Potence Lamp in 1950 for the Tropique House. The Jean Prouve Potence Lamp is beautiful modern wall lamp! This pivoting wall lamp deserves its reputation as a purist masterpiece of Jean Prouve. The minimal spareness of material and formal elements (less is more) create the fascination of the Potence Lamp. Consisting of a single metal rod that extends almost 7 feet from a wall-mounted vertical bracket, there is no base to occupy floor space. A comfortable wood ball-ended handle moves the entire lamp to illuminate a 180-degree range of space. The Jean Prouve Potence Lamp is without question one of the most functional modern wall lights ever made. The iconic Potence Lamp has become a classic icon of modern design. This Jean Prouve Potence Lamp is an authentic Vitra re-edition, fully authorized by the Jean Prouve estate.

Jean Prouve (1901-1984) was a French architect and industrial designer. Jean Prouve is widely recognized as one of the most influential designers of the early modern design movement. Jean Prouve introduced the machine age and industrial engineered modern design aesthetic to interiors in the steel, aluminum and architecture he created. Jean Prouve's functional design stands apart because of its purist and spartan modernist lines. Jean Prouve was once quoted saying "never design anything that cannot be made". Jean Prouve strove for the most construction-sound and materially efficient design solution which is apparent in his design with the Potence Lamp, Standard Chair and Cite Chaise Lounge.
