French lighting manufacturer Jieldé define “industrial chic” with their simple, robust designs. Developed in the early 1950s by Jean-Louis Domecq and produced ever since in Lyon, they combine simple steel construction with a whimsical anthropomorphic design and bright enamel colours that make them instantly recognizable. True to their industrial roots, the joints in each lamp function as electrical connectors, allowing them to be twisted endlessly without putting stress on their wiring. Look for Jieldé’s dramatic, large “Loft” floor lamps, elegant “Signal” table lamps and colourful “Augustin” pendants in a range of sizes. Fun fact: “Jieldé” is simply the initials of the company’s founder, pronounced in French.
