Pair of Paul Mayen Glass Sconces

United States
circa 1958

Early and rare rectangular sconces of white handblown cased glass with chrome fittings, designed by Paul Mayen and produced by Habitat, circa 1958. Can also be used as table lamps by working the cord through the hole on the back bottom. A simple and elegant lighting solution for modernist houses by one of America's most progressive design companies. While production of this series of lights would continue through the 1960s and 1970s, the material was switched to Lumacryl in 1960. The plastic proved more durable (and less expensive to make) than the glass, but lacks the warmth and surface quality of the glass. Rewired. Ref: Extensively referenced, but see Furniture Forum, Spring 1959 measurements are of the glass only.
