Lamp 511 bis by Jean Perzel

Outstanding functionality

Very practical and functional, the head of our lamp 511 bis is swiveling 360° allowing to direct the luminous flux exactly where you want. This clever lamp therefore offers great freedom of use.
In addition, its prismatic glass is anti-blinding and thus allows great visual comfort.

In the living room as a reading light, in an office, or bedroom as a bedside lamp, our lamp brings a decorative touch with its undeniable bold style : a real little jewel of the 30s.

Personalize it to your wishes thanks to the many finishes available.
Handmade by unit by Atelier Jean Perzel Artisans, more than one hundred hours of work are required to create it. Each lamp is signed, making pledge of exceptional quality.

A great history for a small lamp

Jean Perzel imagined this lamp in the 1930s. Surprising for these times, it changed the codes of design by its shape and its extraordinary functionality.

In 1936, it already appeared in numerous magazines and was the star of an office exhibited at the Decorative Artists Exhibition. Over the years, it was often the first choice to functionally illuminate the offices of big names in decoration.

Our lamp 511 bis was also selected for the exhibition “Lights, I think of you” at the Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris) in 1985. An international panorama of lights, from the late 19th century to 1985, was presented thanks to loans from major international museums, collectors and merchants, manufacturers, and French and foreign designers.

To conclude, although it was created in the 1930s, the lamp 511 bis does indeed have a constant modernity which has made it cross the ages … without aging.
