A modernist desk lamp made in the 1970's by Jumo; an important lamp making company from France.
Jumo introduced a desk lamp for industrial office use, widely used in France from the 1940's until the 1970's, with more than 45 models. All of their lamps display an interesting modernist approach with some touch of classicism. The design functions so that different parts can be rotated without damaging the insulated wire; ensuring a safe use. Stripping the old paint exposes the bare metal beneath, usually steel alloy; superior in quality to the recycled metal of mass production pieces seen today. After a fine polishing the resulting metal reveals its character, warmly tempered through the passage of time.
This model has been stripped and polished.
