Once I was exploring Paris with Lucile Demory who took me to Le Corbusier’s La Maison Roche and to his atelier and apartment just outside of the city’s periphery. What struck me as most interesting in the architect’s bedroom was the light fixture jutting out of the wall like a piece of broken and exposed plumbing.
Last week I came across the work of Jörg Schellmann, a fine arts publisher and furniture designer in Munich, whose Staff Wall Lamp is strikingly similar. Pure coincidence or obvious influence, it’s great to find a quirky light like Le Corbusier’s in production and, with a little legwork, available to purchase.
