It was the favorite of such notables as Le Corbusier, the ‘godfather of modern architecture’, who dubbed the lamp ‘type-object’, meaning it was an ‘object reduced to its pure function’. Production stopped at the outbreak of World War II and only now, after more than of a year of experimentation, they are once again being made by hand, in France and sold exclusively to consumers through Holly Hunt. We also think they're very reasonable...prices range from $425 to $995. To learn more click here!
