Lampe de Marseille
Designed in 1954 by Le Corbusier, this is a clever wall lamp that he named “de Marseille” – apparently having been inspired by certain features of Marseille homes in the 1950s. The diffuser’s pivoting form features two cones of dramatically different proportions – the smaller cone directs light upward; the larger, flattened cone directs light downward. The Lampe de Marseille’s light in each conical diffuser can be used independently or simultaneously.
Le Corbusier’s Lampe de Marseille was developed in conjunction with the Le Corbusier Foundation. Nemo Lighting has recently started producing the Lampe de Marseilles wall lamp as part of its Masters Collection highlighting the manufacturer’s efforts to reissue important lighting design from the 20th century, making it available anew to both consumers and collectors.
Lampe de Marseille features a structure in metal that has been finished in a choice of matte gray or whitewash – the interior of each conical diffuser is a shiny white. Each of the diffusers is illuminated by a combination of (1) 60 watt and (1) 75 watt + 54 watt E26 bulbs. Power source is an in-line double switch on the cord.
