If you knew nothing about the Projecteur 365, would you be able to guess of which era it was born? The correct answer would be the middle of the 20th century, 1954 to be precise; however, it would not seem strange to appreciate this light fixture as one that complements contemporary design. Its plans were just rediscovered in the past year.

This marvelous modern spotlight is a great example of a versatile illuminator that expresses the interest in minimalism, purism and Bauhaus aesthetic principles that are characteristic of Le Corbusier's work. The piece has a sharp aluminum body with a charcoal finish in sandblasted anthracite. A circular piece of glass protects the bulb inside, held tightly by a fine round frame and four wing nuts. The mod Projecteur 365 lamp has the added appeal of versatility in its ability to perform as a pendant, wall and table lamp.
