About the Designer:
Designer and Interior Architect Pierre Guariche was one of the most prolific luminaire designers of the 1950s. The designer invented an enormous variety of solutions to lighting structures: the cantilever, the pivoting and tilting arm, spherical counterweights to name a few. In his designs, there is no gratuitous stylistic excess or purposeless detail, whether technical or functional.
Pierre Guariche introduced the codes of a radical 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 to this new collection the full weight of its industrial expertise in luminaire production, and particularly lighting suitability and a deep-rooted knowledge of metalworking.
