Jean Royère's research on light is one of the most beautiful examples of the 20th century. The Antibes model was presented at the 1937 Exposition internationale in the Ensembles mobiliers pavilion. It illustrates the work of the decorator, relying on the possibilities offered by the metal tube to give life to his designs with great lightness. Rare on the market, the Antibes floor lamp is distinguished by its timeless elegance.

Les recherches de Jean Royère autour du luminaire comptent parmi les plus beaux exemples du XXe siècle. Le modèle Antibes fut présenté à l’Exposition internationale de 1937 dans le Pavillon des Ensembles mobiliers. Il illustre le travail du décorateur qui s’appuie sur les possibilités offertes par le tube de métal pour donner vie à ses dessins d’une grande légèreté. Rare sur le marché, le lampadaire Antibes se distingue par son élégance intemporelle.
