G3 & G3 Triple wall lamps

design Pierre Guariche, 1951

The G3 wall lamp with a pivoting perforated grid was one of the most used models by Pierre Guariche. Usable vertically or horizontally, it will find a place above a worktop, in a corridor, at the head of the bed, or in any other place where a compact lamp diffusing a soft and orientable light is necessary.

The G3 wall lamp is available in single and double format, in black, white and gray, dimmable by telephone or conventionally.

Like all Sammode lights, the G3 lamp is manufactured, assembled and packaged in France, in Châtillon-sur-Saône in the Vosges, which ensures perfect manufacturing quality.

Pierre Guariche (1926 - 1995)

If there was one design discipline in which he excelled it was lighting. Designer and interior architect Pierre Guariche was one of the most prolific luminaire designers of the 1950s. That much is clear from his productive collaboration with lamp manufacturer Disderot, for which he was the preferred designer, and for which he would develop more than 40 influential and groundbreaking pieces.

Pierre Guariche designed the full range of luminaires, or perhaps more accurately families of lamps – desk lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps and pendant lamps – to cover all the needs identified for a given space. His luminaires are hugely comfortable and convenient in use, with no visible light source and an appropriate quality of light, whether intended for general lighting or traffic areas, to create an atmosphere or for a specific use, soft, powerful or even diffused by reflection.

The designer invented an enormous variety of solutions: the adjustable balance arm, the cantilever, the pivoting and tilting arm, the ball- jointed arm and spherical counterweights. In his designs, there is no gratuitous stylistic excess or purposeless detail, whether technically or functionally.

Pierre Guariche introduced the codes of a radical—not to say avant-garde – aesthetic. On the one hand, purity of line and totally original forms. On the other, an innovative technical dimension and a real intelligence in the use of materials, especially metal.

As a designer and manufacturer, Sammode brings the full weight of its industrial expertise in luminaire production, and particularly lighting suitability and a deep-rooted knowledge of metalworking. Faithful to the original designs and incorporating today’s technologies, the Sammode –Pierre Guariche models benefit, like all Sammode luminaires, from exceptional production quality and French manufacture.
