Standing Lamp in Chromed Metal and Marble by Marc du Plantier


Born in Madagascar to a family of means, Marc du Plantier (1901-1975) studied mathematics and philosophy before turning to design. This consisted of both interior designs for an elite clientele, as well as sets and costumes for a number of productions for the Comédie Française. du Plantier’s early work was strongly influenced by classical and ancient sources, as well as current trends in design. He took refuge in Spain during the Second World War, and continued to live outside of France, including in Mexico City and Los Angeles, until 1960. The soft gorgeous luster of the original chrome is particularly attractive on this piece. The lamp features a reflector with one socket and two ambient/reading light sockets that can be turned on and off with separate switches. Measures: Base 54 in. (137 cm) H x 13.75 in. (35 cm); 69 in. (175 cm) H with shade.
