Petite Potence set wall lamp + shade.
The Vitra Petite Potence wall lamp, was designed by Jean Prouvé from 1947. Prouvé designed the first Potence lamp for his own home in Nancy, France, and this sophisticated functionality has since found its way into various applications such as in houses and public places .
Simplistic in shape and with a subtle emphasis on material, the Potence Wall Lamp with Abat-Jour Conique Shade is a fascinating lamp that has become iconic. The removable conical shade is a design found in the esteemed designer's archives and has been reissued for the first time.
The Potence lamp is considered one of Prouvé's most puristic works: it consists of a light bulb and a rotating steel rod held by a steel wire. The steel rod has a length of more than one meter and the supplied LED lamp is dimmable. Petite Potence catches the eye with its timeless, minimalist look and is also a great alternative to the traditional pendant lamp.
