Limestone lamp, 1976



What I like

I love the unique piece aspect of this lamp base, hand-carved by the artist whose monogram is to be deciphered: an enigma to be solved, for an object that is extraordinary by its imposing dimensions and its stylized sculpture. Here is an object that you will not find among your friends!

I love this reminder of Mesoamerican art, so popular in the 1970s. The date 76 above the monogram is perfectly consistent with the chosen subject (and the vintage wiring).

I like the material of this fairly large-grained stone with some shell fossils.

Finally, I like the fact that I can look at this lamp sculpture from all sides.

Technical description

Coarse-grained limestone lamp base, rectangular in section: it is carved with a stylized face on three sides, one bearing the date of creation, 1976, and a monogram to be deciphered.

The socket rests on a metal tube painted black (paint jumps).

Around 1976.

Dimensions and weight

Height with socket: 40 cm – Width: 31 cm – Depth: 20.5 cm

Weight: 35 kg

Mix & Match

The fact that this lamp base is a sculpture in itself allows it to stand out in most interiors: it has sufficient strength, and its sculpture is stylized enough not to interfere with the reading of its surroundings.

Due to its date of creation, 1976, it is tempting to use it to light the Space Age red swivel armchairs, or the round coffee table in chromed metal and white veined marble. But you can also put it on the desk of the Banque de France, a little earlier: there is no doubt that the latter will welcome it on its immense plateau.

We can place this lamp next to the cork and wenge bar cabinet from the 1970s, the warm beige of the cork and the sand of the lamp responding to each other.

But it can be used perfectly with ultra-contemporary furniture, and also in a fruitful dialogue for both parties, with 18th or 19th century furniture!

The artist

The sculptor, whose name remains to be discovered, wedged his subject on three sides of the sculpture. Influenced by the Mesoamerican culture that we rediscovered in the 1970s, he produces a sober work, certainly decorative, but without baroque overload: he creates a stylized work by making the best use of the block he sculpts.

The editor

This is a unique work, created entirely by the artist, without editing.
