Signal desk lamp by Jieldé

When Jean-Louis Domecq couldn’t find a suitable lamp to light up what he was doing as a mechanic properly, he created a real revolution in industrial design: the Signal articulated lamp saw the light of day at the end of the 1940s. Equipped with 2 articulated arms with adjustable lampshades, the Signal desk lamp by French designer Jieldé bends to all your desires!

Type 75 Anglepoise desk lamp

Let's cross the Channel to discover a new iconic desk lamp, or rather a series: the Anglepoise type 75. A past master in the art of designing articulated desk lamps, Anglepoise type 75 lamps are perfectly suited to meticulous work requiring directed, stable light, thanks to its fixed base.

Tolomeo Micro lamp by Artemide

How can you talk about desk lamps and not mention the famous Tolomeo collection, a symbol of Made in Italy and the brand's best-seller. While the aluminium finish gives it the look of an architect's lamp, it finds its place in a colourful version on many teenagers’ and children’s desks. It’s particularly recommended for use near a computer, and softens the backlighting to better rest the eyes.

Architect's lamp No. 201, Gras collection by DCW éditions

French company DCW éditions is reissuing the Gras collection by Bernard-Albin-Gras, an iconic series from the 20th century. What makes it so special? Its mechanism without screws or welding makes it very robust. Focusing in on the architect's lamp and its practical clamp attachment which means you can place it anywhere, No. 201, with its straight-lined lampshade, takes on a hyper-modern industrial loft aesthetic. A legend.
