Whether displayed horizontally or vertically, the Nemo Lighting Applique Cylindrique Longue Wall Light has a highly appealing aesthetic that brings a distinctive piece of heritage design into the 21st Century. First produced in the early 1930s, the Applique Cylindrique Longue is a key piece of iconic modernist lighting design, that has stood the test of time and remains a perennial favourite some nine decades on from its conception. Crafted from metal, the lamp features a pair of light sources that come together to create a distinctive glow that will breathe life into any space.
One of the most influential furniture designers of the early modern movement, Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) introduced the 'machine age' aesthetic to interiors in the steel, aluminium and glass furniture she created at Le Corbusier's architectural studio in the late 1920s and 1930s.
Perriand also forged friendships with the gifted young architects and designers from all over the world who, like her, had jumped at the chance to work for Le Corbusier as an unpaid or, if they were very lucky, poorly paid assistant. Together with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, Perriand developed a series of tubular steel chairs, which were then (and are still today) hailed as icons of the machine age.
