Starting from the necessity of illuminating the faces reflected in the mirror of a cabinet designed for the famous French glassworks Boussois, in 1965 Charlotte Perriand designed the wall-mounted version of the Lampe de Bureau, later transformed into a table lamp. The grey steel stem is anchored to a lifted, almost suspended, darker base and the translucid pressed glass diffuser is available in two finishes, white inside and green, red, blue mare or blue grey outside. Lampe de Bureau represents an important exercise in the rationalisation of the traditional table lamp.
