A design classic created by master architect Le Corbusier for the Unité d'habitation of Marseille, a built residence between 1945 and 1952 . With this experimental building, Le Corbusier tries to achieve a new form of urban design: a "vertical village" called "residential units". He created the "Lampe de Marseille" to be installed in the residential units to optimise lighting. Reproduced by Nemo Lighting since 2010, the lamp is a symbol of modernism of the 1950s. The lampshade is made of two asymmetrical cones including two light sources for illumination both direct and indirect with adjustable arms.
Pragmatic and sober, the lamp shade features a diameter of 50cm and the body as well as the arm are made of lacquered metal. Available with matt grey or whitewash body and double switch on the cable for a functional and adjustable lighting source.
