Driven by the need to illuminate faces reflected in the mirror of a piece of furniture designed for the famous French glassworks Boussois, Charlotte Perriand created the Lampe de Bureau wall version in 1965. Inside the diffuser, the white preserves the natural color of the light, while outside, the finishes of the translucent molded glass appear pure and brilliant.
