Serge Mouille is a lighting designer born in Paris in 1922. He developed a talent for drawing at an early age and was admitted to the Arts Appliqués school in France, at the age of 13, where he was the youngest student of his time. He found a mentor in Gabriel Lacroix, who would make him a master in the art of hammering metal. He entered Hénin Orfèvre Paris where he soon established himself among experienced workers, all older than himself. In the 1950s, Serge Mouille created his own company. He also works as a teacher at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et métiers d'Art, succeeding Gabriel Lacroix. It was his meeting with Jacques Adnet in 1951, then director of the Compagnie des Arts Français, that marked a turning point in his career, by designing a "Grand luminaire" for South American clients. Serge Mouille created the three-armed floor lamp for this project, then developed the famous series of Black Shapes - of which the three-armed floor lamp and the straight floor lamp were the first models. The success of Serge Mouille's designer lighting will only increase over the years, and today amateurs and professionals all over the world regularly use Serge Mouille luminaires in their decoration projects.
