Details

Frustrated by the inflexibility of existing workshop lamps, Jean-Louis Domecq designed the Signal lamp in 1950 and it is now considered to be an icon of French industrial art. Its sleek design will work equally well in the sitting room, home office or the bedroom.

The lamp is made from robust enamelled steel and finished in yellow. Its two articulated arms (one 80 cm and the other 30cm) conduct the electrical current and enable the lamp to be adjusted to various angles and heights.

It takes one 40 watt E14 bulb (not included).

Jean-Louis Domecq

In the late 1940s, tired of searching for a reliable and practical lamp to equip the machines in his workshop, Jean-Louis Domecq (1920-1983) decided to design and construct his own. After some trial and error, the final lamp drawing is fixed in 1950. It perfectly matches the specifications: simple, robust and articulated in order to adapt itself to all workstations. With this great invention, from 1951 to 1952, he industrialised the production. In 1953, he created a company dedicated to the marketing of his lamp and whose initials make the name: Ji eL Dé. Since that date, this lamp called ‘Standard’ by customers, never ceased to be produced and to evolve. In the 1990s, its successors adapted from its purely industrial context in the form of a floor lamp, table lamp, wall lamp in a variety of vibrant colours. Accompanied by its sister design the Signal lamp, and the suspension Augustin, Jieldé lamps are recognised as icons of French industrial design. Made in Lyon, France, with the same traditional craftsmanship, each piece is numbered to verify its authentication.
