Looking for authenticity, for respect of the original work, for savoir-faire and for traditional workmanship, the Serge Mouille Editions® carries on the work of talented artists and imposes its lights as an unmissable work of the design industry. Let’s focus on this designer house, on a story which has charmed Signatures Singulières.

Created in 1999 by Gin Mouille who is the widow of Serge Mouille and Claude Delpiroux, the Serge Mouille Editions® carries on the work of the creative artist and the teacher which started in 1951. Serge Mouille met Jacques Adnet who is the director of the Compagnie des Arts Français. He created at his request the Three-arm lamp, first one of the famous series Formes Noires, and then the Standing lamp. These are signature lamps which put him on the design stage beside Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand, Georges Jouve and Norbert Pierlot.
Exhibitions, creations, schooling, Serge Mouille had two careers and had decided to stop his lamps production in 1963 in order to devote himself to teaching. For about 40 years, his creations have been put in brackets before rising 11 years after his death through the Serge Mouille Editions®. Set up a few kilometers from the designer’s village, its goal is to fulfill the history, the philosophy and the plans of Serge Mouille by acting on the production of his work.
Carrying on the original work of the creator, working on with a respect of the handmade spirit and in compliance of the origins of shapes, dimensions and colors : these are the will of the Serge Mouille Editions®. The constant search of authenticity, of respect of the original work, of the savoir-faire and the specific way of production is and will stay one of the main value of the house which keeps the quality of the handmade finish for extraordinary lamps.
Thanks to their pared-down, organic and mobile shaped, to their graceful rods, to their pivot arms and to their dark metals and white reflectors, the thirty-five lamps of the Serge Mouille Editions are recognizable among all. Marked by a sculptural and harmonious physique, they remind us of the feeling of movement in space to blossom gracefully. Floor lamps, wall lamps, ceiling lights and desk lamps are all available in black and sometimes in white. A signature monochrome which makes the fame of the house.
