Disderot


J13 Lamp
J14 Floor lamp


design Joseph-André Motte, 1957/59

Finally reissued by Disderot, the poetic but extremely rare J13 table lamp was an inaccessible dream for many collectors, who consider it to be one of the most beautiful French lamps. Inspired by a Japanese paper lantern, delicate and refined, designed to be easy to move, it is intended to be placed on a piece of furniture or directly on the floor, whether in the living room, in a bedroom or an office.

The J14 floor lamp is a variation just as rare and sought after as the J13 lamp. It is now equipped with a dimmer that allows you to get the most out of its beautiful opaline glass shade. Its minimalist elegance highlights its luxurious finish - gold or brushed brass, chromed metal or grey metal, black or grey marble.

Joseph-André Motte

Joseph-André Motte was born in 1925 in the Hautes-Alpes but it was in Paris at the School of Applied Arts to Industry that he studied under the direction of Louis Sognot and Rene Gabriel, two of the great masters of French modernity. 

He graduated from his class in 1948 and in 1952 he joined the studio of the third French master, Marcel Gascoin. It is there that he meets Pierre Guariche and Michel Mortier with whom he develops a friendship and a deep professional complicity. 

Together they created the Atelier de Recherche Plastique (ARP) in 1954 to present French manufacturers a practical, comfortable, modern furniture at a reasonable price.
