Jack the Knight.. Good title for a DJ no?
At a time (the 1920's and early 30's) when putting anything metallic into a sophisticated household interior was essentially unthinkable, French lighting designer Jacques Le Chevallier forged some pretty harsh and brutal pieces that shocked his contemporaries. As a result production of his lamps was extremely limited . As irony would have it, those lamps with the exposed screws and raw metal slabs look perfect in modern households as we now live quite comfortably today with plastic and metal. This book is a rare chance to see Le Chevallier's work ( I wonder if that is his real name...because...) in a comprehensive way. That makes it an essential reference for lovers of modern design.
