Table lamp Uranus by Max Sauze, France 1960
[SOLD] Geometrical table lamp by French designer Max Sauze.
Max Sauze is a French sculptor and artist. He developed new forms and innovative techniques for his products. He was born in Alger in 1933 and first studied at the school of fine arts in Alger and then at the famous Camondo school in Paris. He moved to Aix en Provence where his career took off. He started to work with aluminum and searched for new geometric forms. At the end of the 1960s, Sauze had great sucess all around the world. Several exhibitions with his products have been organized in Paris: in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, at the Centre Pompidou and at the Palais de la Découverte.
This is an original early production by Max Sauze Studios and not a later reiteration by Ekilux (by his son Sebastian Sauze). It is made of anodised aluminium strips that are bent around a frame. Very elegant and fluid design, nevertheless a strong statement. The light spreads through the strips plus up- and downwards as well. Brass and porceline bulb holder.
In good condition with some age related signs. Rewired by us for safe usage.
