"Lighting Andrée Putman, Écart International, Capc Bordeaux / Herbst, Gray, Frank, Mallet-stevens"Luminaire designed by Andrée Putman on the occasion of the fitting out of the CAPC - contemporary art museum, in Bordeaux, in 1989. An integral part of this decoration project, about which the museum recently organized a retrospective exhibition (2015- 2016), this luminaire is obviously a rare piece of limited series. The diffuser is in enamelled jail, and has two small indentations and a few scratches from use. The base rod is in hammered lacquered metal. Very beautiful proportions are to be noticed here and to be argued about the richness of Andrée Putman's work. In the 1980s, the architect was at the peak of her art since with Éditions Écart International, she re-edited furniture from the 1930s by great designers such as René Herbst, Jean-Michel Frank, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Eileen Gray etc. At the same time, she acquired international notoriety for the arrangements she made with her own creations. Base diameter: 50 cm, Diffuser diameter: 60 cm, Luminaire height: 200 cm.
