Serge Mouille lighting

Posted on Fri, 18 Nov 2011 by KiM

On Monday Jo blogged the interior photography of Hallie Burton, and in that post were a couple of photos of a VERY cool light fixture. A reader named Martha asked about it, and I told her it was the creation of Serge Mouille. She noted that since I had already blogged about Jieldé lights (here and here), that I might be up for featuring another French lighting design. I was certainly up for the challenge, as I have coveted Serge Mouille fixtures for some time now. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be owning one of these beauties anytime soon as they are awfully pricey. Damn.

Ok, I definitely don't like those in any configuration! Fun to see though.

sue says:

I think the first one is my favorite with the black fixture against all the creamy-white.

christa says:

Oh, interesting. To me they look like a large insect ready to devour you once you sit below them — look out, little girl on the pink sofa!

priscilla says:

I LOVE them. They also remind me of spiders, but in a good Charlotte the spider kind of way.

selina says:

I want one!

Just a leetle too reminiscent of gynecological exams for me…

I used a SM ceiling fixture for a client. LOVE this round up!

Martha says:

Aw thanks, Kim! They really are superb pieces of design. What I like about them is precisely their exaggerated shape, like a 50's cartoon come alive, like a Charley Harper or Lucienne Day drawing. And by coincidence I went to see the film "The Skin I Live In" a couple of days ago (which features fabulous interiors *and* it's a great film) and lo and behold a Serge Mouille light was used in the set decoration, stalking me again. Hot damn, I promise I'll buy you one too when I'm rich, Kim!

Fernanda says:

Congratulations, Kim! Nice post and beautiful image choices.
I published a photo of one of his pendents in my blog too, months ago (actually, I'm pretty sure is one of his works, but not 100%…):
By the way, I would be very happy if you make me a little visit 😉

I LOVE these too! I recently picked up a floor lamp from here in NYC for less than $500. It's not a Serge Mouille, but was clearly inspired by him. It's a well-made piece and I'm super happy with it. 🙂
