The year 2023 marks an exceptional milestone for Atelier Jean Perzel, as we proudly celebrate the centenary of our house.
Over these 100 years, our workshop has left an indelible mark on the world of exceptional lighting. By always combining tradition and innovation, we’ve been creating long-lasting luminous works of art since 1923.
A story of lights and elegance
Founded in 1923, the Atelier Jean Perzel has survived the ages with grace, demonstrating exceptional artisanal know-how passed down from generation to generation. It is this expertise, preserved since 1923, which has earned us the prestigious french government label “EPV” : Living Heritage Company.
From iconic lighting fixtures to contemporary creations, each Perzel piece embodies the very essence of timeless elegance.
