Dreaming of the Serge Mouille Lamp

Room by Oliver Furth From Maison de LUXE at Greystone. The LUXE Magazine Event  Serge Mouille Three-Arm Floor Lamp
I have been in love with this lamp since the second I laid eyes on it. Oh how I wish it were not $7,610

From DWR Has anyone seen anything similar in a poor mans version?

Serge Mouille Three-Arm Floor Lamp
Designed by Serge Mouille
Serge Mouille designed his angular, insect-like lights as "a reaction to the Italian models that were beginning to invade the market in 1950," which he criticized for being "too complicated." His large-scale Three-Arm Floor Lamp (1952) has a kinetic, sculptural aesthetic that evokes a sense of movement in space. All of the arms can be rotated in various directions, allowing for ample, well-directed lighting for any task. Mouille designed the Three-Arm Lamp for a client whose instructions were simply, "I want a big light because I have clients in South America who have huge rooms." All of his lighting solutions feature Mouille's hallmark signatures as a designer: the way the arms are joined to the diffusers, the washer and six-sided screw hardware, the form of the reflectors, and the refined lines of the steel tubing. Bulb (not included): 75W/E26. Made in France.
  • Three arms can be adjusted in any direction.
  • Shades are produced using the original molds, proportions, materials and techniques.
  • Each lamp is stamped and numbered.


  1. White on White has a knock-off for less than $600. Don't know anything about the quality, though!

  2. The treluci by Sonneman is about $1300 but it has cones. The cone shade floor lamp from West Elm is only $200 and I just got it. It is surprisingly heavy and I do like it, but nothing will ever top the Mouille!
