MFL-1 Standing Lamp - Replica

A stunning French icon, the MFL-1 Standing Lamp is a spectacular piece from French designer Serge Mouille’s iconic lighting series. Dramatic shapes and angles create a real theatre within the room, making this lamp as much a work of art as it is a source of illumination. Consisting of an iron arm and tripod base, the main feature of this piece is the aluminium ‘chapeau’ (or ‘hat’) styled shade. The unique shade rotates to the left and right hand-side of its axis by a brass ball and socket joint, adding a touch of practicality to a legendary design. The iron and aluminium is coated in a black matte lacquer, with only the interior of the shade finished in white to maximise the bulb’s reflective qualities.

JustDesign.shop produce this iconic design with outstanding craftsmanship in a fine blend of iron, aluminium and brass.

About the Designer

Serge Mouille

Serge Mouille

Born in Paris in 1922 Serge Mouille attended the School of Applied Arts starting at just 13-years-old, where he learnt the arts of silversmithing and metallurgy. At 15 he studied with famous silversmith Gabriel Lacroix and later gained his diploma in the subject.

Changing his focus to lighting design, Mouille was commissioned by Jacques Adnet to create lighting designs in reaction to the complicated Italian designs that flooded the market in the 1950s. He produced his lighting by hand and during his lifetime was awarded with many prizes including the Charles Plumet Prize in 1955. The Hollywood actor Henry Fonda was so impressed with Mouille’s designs that he literally insisted that Mouille created a lamp for him, refusing to leave his premises until he agreed to carry out the commission. Mouille eventually returned to his first love silversmithing and became director of the silversmith department at the School of Applied Arts.
