The G1 wall light is both timeless and iconic, and can illuminate hotel lounges, airport frequent flyer lounges, lobbies in blocks of flats, a company’s meeting room, the indoor areas of art galleries, a private library’s reading corner, lounge coffee tables, entrance halls in luxury blocks of flats, etc.

Wall light

The G1 was designed by Pierre Guariche in 1951 as the first in a long run. After establishing its status as the must-have luminaire of the 1950’s, this luminaire is now making a comeback as an exclusive Sammode re-issue. This wall light version of this designer luminaire with its large metal shade appears to defy gravity....

Re-issues of the iconic luminaires designed by Pierre Guariche

Pierre Guariche has left an inheritance filled with sleek luminaires in the form of wall lights, suspended light fittings, ceiling lights, floor lamps, desk lamps, etc. Guariche luminaires are compatible with any application or any site, whether you need a well-lit space with an eye-catching design or a discreet wall light blending into the architecture. What do all these creations have in common? They are quite simply timeless.

Pierre Guariche : a headline designer from the 1950′s

Pierre Guariche (1926 – 1995) was a prolific interior designer and architect during the post-war period and is now considered an icon in the world of French design. Functional objects with sleek lines are his trademark. The luminaires he designed in the 1950’s are identified with a simple G and a number in a surprisingly modern manner. Each model conceals a hub of light technology, guaranteeing optimal visual comfort.

The G1: a balanced luminaire

The G1 houses two light sources to allow for direct and indirect lighting, one of the designer’s great ideas. The long brass arm fitted with a counterweight swivels to bring the light into precisely the required position. The bulb inside the luminaire is concealed behind a white aluminium cover to prevent glare. This spectacular luminaire can defy gravity.
