Large Snail Ceiling Lamp
Throughout the 1950s Mouille designed large, angular, insect-like wall mounted and standing lamps with several arms and smaller, more curved wall sconces. He worked to achieve a kinetic, sculptural aesthetic that evoked a sense of movement in space. He claimed his lighting fixtures were “a reaction to the Italian models, which were beginning to invade the market in 1950,” and which he thought to be “too complicated.”
A snail shell provides the inspiration for this lamp with its swirling cut out in the circular shade. Light projects downward through the opening while the shade causes light to reflect from the ceiling.
