This floor lamp was designed by Michel Buffet and edited by Robert Mathieu in 1951. The design can be found in the permanent collections of the MoMA New York, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, and Centre National des Arts Plastiques/Fonds National d’Art Contemporain.
>Buffet (b. 1931) began designing while still a student in the1950s, inspired by the works of pioneering French modernists. He went on to work for American designer Raymond Loewy. Today he is known for his minimalist lighting design, often produced in monochromatic industrial materials.
