Jean Prouvé Potence Wall Lamp by Vitra

About the Item

Designed by Jean Prouvé for his own groundbreaking La Maison Tropicale, the Potence Lamp (1950) provides a unique solution for suspension lighting with its ingenious engineering and elegant form. Consisting of a single metal rod that extends almost seven feet from a wall-mounted vertical bracket, this base-free lamp saves valuable floor space. A simple handle with wood knob moves the entire lamp laterally to illuminate a 180-degree range of space. Bulb not included. Reproduced to exacting standards by Vitra. Made in Germany. Lamp wiring works, switch not included,
