design Pierre Guariche, 1952

As functional as it is aesthetic, the G13 ceiling lamp is equally at home in a bedroom, a corridor, an office or even your kitchen. Its perforated metal grille and authentic Fresnel glass lens both contribute to its wonderful diffusion of light. G13 is available in 3 sizes (small, medium and large) and 3 finishes (black, white and grey), and can be used alone or as a series to create as many compositions as you desire.

Like all Sammode lightings, the G13 wall / ceiling lamp is manufactured, assembled and packaged in France, in Châtillon-sur-Saône in the Vosges, which allows the manufacturer to guarantee perfect manufacturing quality.

Pierre Guariche (1926 - 1995)

If there was one design discipline in which he excelled it was lighting. Designer and interior architect Pierre Guariche was one of the most prolific luminaire designers of the 1950s. That much is clear from his productive collaboration with lamp manufacturer Disderot, for which he was the preferred designer, and for which he would develop more than 40 influential and groundbreaking pieces.

Pierre Guariche designed the full range of luminaires, or perhaps more accurately families of lamps – desk lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps and pendant lamps – to cover all the needs identified for a given space. His luminaires are hugely comfortable and convenient in use, with no visible light source and an appropriate quality of light, whether intended for general lighting or traffic areas, to create an atmosphere or for a specific use, soft, powerful or even diffused by reflection.

The designer invented an enormous variety of solutions: the adjustable balance arm, the cantilever, the pivoting and tilting arm, the ball- jointed arm and spherical counterweights. In his designs, there is no gratuitous stylistic excess or purposeless detail, whether technically or functionally.

Pierre Guariche introduced the codes of a radical—not to say avant-garde – aesthetic. On the one hand, purity of line and totally original forms. On the other, an innovative technical dimension and a real intelligence in the use of materials, especially metal.

As a designer and manufacturer, Sammode brings the full weight of its industrial expertise in luminaire production, and particularly lighting suitability and a deep-rooted knowledge of metalworking. Faithful to the original designs and incorporating today’s technologies, the Sammode –Pierre Guariche models benefit, like all Sammode luminaires, from exceptional production quality and French manufacture.
