In line with the reissue of this collection, it is the turn of the G50 table lamp to be reissued, 64 years after its original edition in 1958. With its timeless industrial design, the G50 is now equipped with a dimming technology that allows it to control your lighting atmosphere.

Sammode signs the reedition of this collection conceived in the 1950s byone of the greatest French designers and interior architects of the post-war years: Pierre Guariche.

The G50 table lamp, a historical design

A nice round shape, a harmonious perforation and four fine and delicate brass feet, strong elements describing the G50 table lamp designed by Pierre Guariche in 1958.

In black or white, the G50 will bring you a soft and diffuse light. Choose the power of your bulbs to create a rich or poetic atmosphere.

Throughout the day, vary the light intensity and create a play of reflections from its base to its opaline cap. The G50 lamp will fit perfectly with all your interiors.

Original G50 designed for Disderot in 1951.

2. Pierre Guariche – French designer and interior architect

The idea behind his work is to design modern, rational lighting and furniture, with the aim of mass production using new industrial processes, with the aim of making them accessible to as many people as possible. A noble challenge !

From wall lamps to desk lamps, including suspension lamps and floor lamps, Pierre Guariche designs objects that are above all functional, at the service of the user’s comfort, with pure and elegant lines.

Pierre Guariche (1926–1995)

Pierre Guariche has two activities: design on the one hand, and interior architecture on the other. His quality of technician and his taste for the research of the function lead him to innovate. This is the case for the G1 pendulum luminaire that he designed for Disderot in 1951.

The man is an expert in experimentation. This allowed him to be awarded, in 1965, the René-Gabriel Prize which rewards “creators imagining innovative models in a qualitative and economic range”, ultimate recognition of his importance in the history of modern lighting and furniture.

3. A Pierre Guariche re-edition by Sammode

That we have chosen to reissue some of these models today is anything but coincidental. Our aesthetic and technological quest is reminiscent of the one advocated by Guariche in the past. The similarities are legion. In particularly, they have a name: innovation.

The designer and interior architect has designed “families” of lights (wall lamp, desk lamp, suspension, floor lamp…), which meet all the identified needs of each space. Its luminaires offer excellent user comfort (no visible light source) and an adequate quality of light: from powerful general or traffic lighting to a soft, punctual atmosphere diffused by reflection.

Swinging pendulum, pivoting or tilting jib, articulated arm with ball joints and counterweight spheres… man has invented a wide variety of devices. With him, no gratuitous styling, no technical or functional detail not justified. Pierre Guariche has established the codes of a radical aesthetic. On the one hand, an inventive technical dimension and an intelligence of materials, especially for metal. On the other hand, pure lines and new shapes.
