This example of the “Araignée” ceiling light contains “Godet” reflectors, which are hammered in a triangular form. The bent arms and adapted shades prohibit the direct view of the bulbs when seated below the ceiling light. This design was featured prominently in the stand of Geneviève Pons in the June 1954 Salon des Artistes Décorateurs. Organized around the theme of “Jeunesse” or youth, the items exhibited sought to find artistic solutions for a typical family’s daily needs and difficulties.
