With its striking three-headed pendant light design, our Serge Mouille Contemporary Pendant Lamp is cast out of solid iron. Its wide radius allows it to illuminate even the largest living or dining room, while the adjustable shades mean that the light can be brightened or softened depending on the mood. All of this makes the Contemporary Pendant the ideal centrepiece for any stylish living space.
His Contemporary Lamp Series was Serge Mouille's modern take on the chandelier, allowing many lights to work together in a more fluid, bespoke way. The results included this three-headed version, which balanced both drama and subtlety perfectly, while also allowing a customisable lighting effect with its adjustable shades. The three heads stretch out from the central fixture like the branches of a tree, while the eye-catching finish allows it to sit proudly at the centre of any room. All with Serge Mouille's trademark playfulness and understated cool. The range also includes MSC-R2 Contemporary Wall Lamp and Table Lamp.
1922 - 1988
French industrialist, silversmith and teacher, Serge Mouille is best known for his modernist lighting fixtures. His skilful mastery of metalwork is evident in all his designs.The son of a policeman and seamstress, Mouille had a passion for metal works from an early age. At 13, he began training at the School of Applied Arts' silver workshop, studying under sculptor, Gabriel Lacroix. He was the youngest student there. Mouille graduated in 1941 with such a gift for the trade that he became a teacher at the school just four years later. The same year, he also opened his own workshop, initially concentrating on handrails, wall sconces and chandeliers. In the 1950s, he started to design intricate, hand-crafted floor lights and wall mounted lamps. These were inspired by the female form, in particular the musculature and skeleton. Showcased alongside Charlotte Perriand, Isamu Noguchi and Jean ProuvÃ©, Mouille's lamps soon grabbed the worldwide attention. In the mid 1950s, Hollywood legend, Henry Fonda turned up at his workshop and refused to leave until Mouille designed him a lamp. This became the first Mouille lamp to reach America.Mouille's creations are timeless classics that still look modern today. His most iconic designs include the Contemporary Pendant Lamp, the MFL-3 Style Contemporary Floor Lamp, the MSC-R1C Contemporary Wall Lamp, MCL-R6 Style Contemporary Pendant Lamp and MSC-R2 Style Contemporary Wall Lamp.
