Jean Prouvé's Potence lamp:

We have some lighting issues in the downstairs and this lamp would be a very cool solution (although Briar is still not convinced).
Jean Prouvé designed the lamp in collaboration with Charlotte Perriand in 1950.
The single metal rod extends almost 7 feet and pivots 180 degrees, which means one lamp can be used to light various parts of our living/ dining room.
Plus, in 1930 Prouvé helped establish the French Union of Modern Artists, whose manifesto read, "We like logic, balance and purity." If only I had been alive then— I would have joined.
