Description from Design Within Reach
Designed in collaboration with Charlotte Perriand for Prouvé’s Tropique house, the Potence Lamp (1950) provides a unique solution for suspension lighting with its ingenious engineering and elegant form. Consisting of a single metal rod that extends almost 7 feet from a wall-mounted vertical bracket, there is no base to occupy floor space. A comfortable wood ball-ended handle moves the entire lamp laterally to illuminate a 180-degree range of space. Bulb (included): incandescent 100W/E26. Reproduced to exacting standards by Vitra. Made in Germany.
