Potence Pivotante


Manufacturer / Produsent

Period/ periode


In 1938 she designs
a lamp named Potence Pivotante.
In her autobiography, the lamp is postdated
two years. She writes: “In 1940
I designed a revolving and cheap
lamp, manufactured with long, black
tubes assembled in a shape of an inverted
L, to bring electrical cable from
the switch to the bulb”. In 1950 Jean
Prouvé designs his Potence, considered
one of the paradigms of his genius.
Compare them! The idea is the same.
