Serge Mouille light
Mid-20th century lighting designer Serge Mouille created this iconic light with rotating reflectors in 1953. The elegant shape integrates sculpture and practical lighting design. Available in black or white, in floor and wall mounted versions, by Edition Serge Mouille, it’s available from Tanguy Rolin www.tanguyrolin.co.uk.
Jean Prouve chair
Jean Prouve designed the Standard Chair in 1934. The thinking behind it is that chairs bear greater weight on their rear legs, so the front legs are made in tubular steel piping and the back legs are more sturdily constructed to sustain extra weight. Today this chair is manufactured by VITRA in a selection of timbers (including the original oak), with metal legs available in a range of paint finishes. One of their largest suppliers is Domain.
Le Corbusier table
The great 20th century architect Le Corbusier also turned his hand to product design. This glass-topped and stainless steel version of the table designed by him in our main image is a 1984 adaptation by Charlotte Perriand for Cassina. Called the LC10 dining table, it’s available from Chaplins , who also have the first VITRA ‘shop in shop’ in the UK within their huge 25,000 sq. ft. showroom.
