The story behind the MSC-R2 Style Contemporary Wall Lamp
Stretching out across a room like an overgrown tree bursting through the wall,the MSC-R2 Wall Lamp was realised in 1950 and would become one of the eccentric Mouille's most celebrated designs. Employing the same sleek,curved metal 'branches' as the MFL-3 and the MCL-R6,it was the result of his desire to introduce the natural form into the home,while also utilising the newest,most innovative materials available to him. The adjustable shades even allowed those who bought the lamp to customise it themselves and change the mood of a room at will,making it a real 'design for the people'.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
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 Prouvé, 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.
