Background: In the late 1940’s, unable to find a satisfactory light for use whilst working, the French mechanic Jean-Louis Domecq, began designing the perfect solution to his required specification; simple, robust and flexible in movement to adapt to all working stations. Jean-Louis Domecq took 10 years to perfect, and in 1953 he formed the company Jielde (based on his initials: Ji eL De), which since has been dedicated to manufacturing and marketing his product.
Products: Jielde lamps have become icons of the French industrial art. Jielde’s original product was Loft (initially named Standard), and was produced as a table and floor version, as is today. Then came the sister products; Signal (a more petite version of Loft), and Augustin (the suspension light), all available in a myriad of colours and sizes.
Key Designers: Jean-Louis Domecq
Philosophy: Jielde up-hold the original designs and visions of Jean-Louis Domecq, and all original products continue to be manufactured and are now used extensively world-wide. Each luminaire is stamped with their individual serial number and have the trademark badge adding uniqueness to each and every Jielde light.
