History and Origins
In the post-war era, Jean-Louis Domecq, a mechanical workshop leader, felt an urgent need to create a desk lamp perfectly tailored to his specific requirements. This led to the creation of the Jieldé lamp, which became synonymous with sturdiness, flexibility, and innovation. Its wireless joints were a revelation of the times, offering unparalleled mobility.
