It all starts when Jean-Louis Domecq designs a lamp adapted to the needs of his occupation, a simple, robust, articulated lamp with no cables in its joints.
Its Jieldé system uses innovative concentric contact circles in the articulated arms, a revolutionary concept composed of chrysocale, an alloy of copper, zinc and tin
The final model was born in 1953
The success is seen everywhere: the “Jieldé” lamp proliferates in and transforms factories, workshops, drawing tables
Its charming simplicity spreads too beyond the industrial world and its light enhances the interiors of our homes, thanks to the multiplicity of superb styles and finishes offered
The Jieldé, a star.
From then on, the “Standard” becomes the “Loft”. In 2003, the “Signal” is born, a replica of the original lamp in a smaller size. The “Augustin”, “Clément” and “Beaumont” and “Dante” suspensions will follow, most recently the “LaK” lamp and the Aicler range were rereleased in 2019
The lamps are still handmade, with the original tools, in the workshops of Saint Priest, in the suburbs of Lyon in France
Each lamp manufactured from the wide choice of colours and finishes in the Jieldé collection is unique, the proof of this originality is the affixed plate with its individual identifying number
