Serge Mouille was a French master of metalwork and lighting design, who created some of the most iconic lamps of the 20th century. He was born in Paris in 1922 and showed an early talent for metalwork. He studied at the School of Applied Arts and became a teacher there at the age of 25. He also opened his own workshop, where he produced handcrafted wall sconces, floor lamps, and chandeliers. His most famous designs include the tripod desk lamp, the three-arm ceiling lamp, and the two arm wall sconce, which features slender black steel arms and aluminum shades that resemble insect antennae or shells.
