Design by Jean Prouvé, 1947/1950

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.

Jean Prouvé created the first version of the Potence wall lamp for his own home in Nancy: a simple light bulb affixed to a long, pivoting steel bar, which is held by a steel wire. This functionalist, puristic design was soon produced in various sizes, with an added handle on larger models to facilitate the swivel movement.

Petite Potence has similar proportions to the larger model Potence, while its compact dimensions are ideally suited to smaller interiors. The swing arm is 40.5“ long, with a powder-coated finish in colors derived from the originial hues used by Prouvé. The cable is sheathed in a high-quality textile casing, and the LED bulb is dimmable. Thanks to its reductive aesthetic, Petite Potence is an ideal lighting choice for a wide variety of settings, from dining and living rooms to offices or cafés
