Jean Boris Lacroix dog table lamp Disderot France 1950





Rare dog lamp designed by Jean Boris Lacroix and manufactured by Disderot in France in 1950. Extra special due to its rubber feet and a plastic collar, which are often missing in similar lamps. The folded metal dog has a red body, black ears, and a white nose. It has a fun, minimalistic and playful design, resembling a dachshund, which gives it a lot of character. In fully original condition with age related wear.


Jean-Boris Lacroix was born in 1902 and began his career when he was just 18, working with Paul Dumas. Later, he became the artistic director at the famous Vionnet haute-couture house from 1924 to 1937. During this time, he met important people like J.M Frank, Pierre Chareau, and Jean Dunand.


Lacroix also made his own furniture, using glass and metal, and he showed it at the 1927 Fair of Artists Decorators. However, what got the most attention was his lamps. What made Lacroix special was that he was one of the first to use acrylic in his lamp designs in the 1930s. His style was all about very precise shapes, straight lines, sharp corners, and smooth surfaces. Even after he passed away in 1984, his unique designs continue to be admired and inspire people who love art and design.
