The innovation in this Pierre Guariche Sconce, edited by Disderot, is its pure functionality and simplicity of design. Guariche’s approach to both contemporary furniture and architecture was characterized by an emphasis on form and volume. Overall, his designs reflect a commitment to simplicity and to creating furniture in series that could be industrially produced.
This particular sconce is in extraordinarily good condition, and the hardware is original. The paper lining, acting as a filter, is not damaged from the bulbs, and the metal possesses a charming overall patina.
