JEAN-CHARLES MOREUX FOSSIL TABLE LAMP

French designer Jean-Charles Moreux was one of the best designers working in the 1930's. and he often used fossils in his lamp designs. The resulting pieces combine the unexpected, spontaneous and almost magical aspects of fossils– structured yet random, lyrical and poetic in their accidental beauty - with often stark, architectural mountings that are dramatic counterpoints to the irregularities of nature. 31" H x 17" W.
