Pierre Chareau designed this floor lamp in 1926 in France. The "Nun" Floor lamp is perhaps Chareau's most famous lighting piece. It is considered sculptural, as well as functional.
As early as 1900 Chareau began his artistic career as a student of the famous Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris where he focused on architecture and design. By the 1920's he was already known in the design world for his complex structures and innovative use of architectural space. Pierre Chareau began to explore an interest in Cubist space by the mid 1920's and soon after his designs became highly sculptural. He is known for his use of combining materials such as lightly hammered steel, unpolished metals, and rich mahogany.
