SAMMODE STUDIO

In 1967, Sammode developed its iconic lighting: the HFT, or "Hermetic Fluorescent Tube". Very simple in appearance - a tubular envelope closed at each end by a stainless steel flange - it actually uses a sophisticated technique that forges a perfectly identifiable aesthetic. Relevant and effective, the product would quickly become a cult object. With nearly 50 years’ experience of lighting in an industrial environment, Sammode today chooses to offer this expertise to the general public with the creation of a specific range of lights with timeless lines, under the Sammode Studio label.

In 1967, Sammode developed its iconic lighting: the HFT, or "Hermetic Fluorescent Tube". Very simple in appearance - a tubular envelope closed at each end by a stainless steel flange - it actually uses a sophisticated technique that forges a perfectly identifiable aesthetic. Relevant and effective, the product would quickly become a cult object. With nearly 50 years’ experience of lighting in an industrial environment, Sammode today chooses to offer this expertise to the general public with the creation of a specific range of lights with timeless lines, under the Sammode Studio label.

The French National Library in Paris and the Court of Justice of the European Communities in Luxembourg, designed by Dominique Perrault, the Ray and Maria Stata Center of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology by Frank Gehry in Cambridge (United States), the Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly in Lorient, by Jacques Ferrier, the Nestlé-France headquarters in Noisiel, by the Reichen & Robert agency, the Youth Centre of the Cochin Hospital in Paris, and the André Malraux Media Library in Strasbourg, by Jean-Marc Ibos and Myrto Vitart, the Mama Shelter hotel in Paris, decorated by Philippe Starck, etc., every year, Sammode fits out a number of public and private buildings, some of which require a more domestic feel. Sammode lights provide appropriate and refined lighting, as well as a singular aesthetic with a strong identity.

Derived from the architectural ranges, the models in the Sammode Studio range have been completely redesigned and reconfigured for home use. Some have grilles or other metal mesh that accentuate their aesthetic singularity. All combine sobriety, elegance and efficiency for a feeling of both security and comfort. Popular among professionals, the performance and robustness of Sammode lighting here gives prominence to softness and emotion. Light is, no doubt, impalpable, immaterial. For Sammode, it is matter, giving space its density, its thickness. Sammode's vocation is to dress light. So it’s up to you, then, to install these lights where and how you wish. Mikado-style, like this work by the French artist François Morellet entitled 10 Tubes of Neon at Random or, in a more free and airy configuration, in the style of his Italian colleague Lucio Fontana, creator of many pieces that he called Spatial Ambiances.

Sammode is also reissuing a selection of lights designed in the 1950s by one of France's leading interior designers and architects: Pierre Guariche. Faithful to the original design and integrating contemporary technologies, the Sammode-Pierre Guariche-branded models have, like all Sammode lights, an exceptional quality of workmanship and French manufacture.
