What a wonderful Industrial lamp is this Jieldé. It is unique in the world, it can settle and unsettle by ourselves, grow longer, grow shorter, which articulates in all direction, which laughs at vibration, which can revolve indefinitely, and absolutely waterproof.
By the end of the 40s, tired of not finding a lamp adapted to his activity of mechanics, Jean-Louis Domecq draws one. After some trials, the definitive drawing is fixed in April 1950. It perfectly corresponds to the fixed specifications: simple, strong and articulated to adapt itself to all workstations.
Because of this brilliant invention, he will spend the years 1951 and 1952 to industrialize the production. In 1953, he created a company dedicated to the marketing of its lamp, whose initials will form the name: JLD (pronounce in French) / Ji eL Dé.
Since that date, this lamp called “The Standard” by all customers, has never stopped being produced and will evolve according to the standards and will adapt sometimes itself to the needs of some specific applications. Jean-Louis Domecq will have designed about forty lamps. Deceased in 1983, he will thus not see, in the 1990s, his successors taking “The Standard” out of his purely industrial context. Floor lamp, reading light, wall lamp, quite adorned with glittering colors, “The Standard” became Loft.
They are made in Lyon (France) with the same gestures of former days; and all the components are manufactured in France as well, this is a real “Made In France”. Each one has a different number to remain unique. You can recognize them as they are all wearing a metal sign or a sticker. Nowadays, the Jieldé lamps are recognized as being icons of the French Industrial Art. You can find them with 1, 2, 3, 4 , 5 and even 6 arms!
