Inspired by Manhattan’s skyscrapers, French designer Hervé Langlais conjured up this unique floor lamp with an exposed flourish of brass at the top. The 3 tall vertical rods of the lamp column form a stepped arrangement above the lampshade and are anchored on a raised circular base that appears to float off the ground. An oversize drum lampshade in white, off-white or grey complements the solid-brass structure available in a variety of satin-metal finishes.

Made in France
Nestled in the Loire Valley, CVL Luminaires first debuted in 1960 and has been handcrafting exquisite lighting pieces in France ever since. Featuring “noble materials” including brass, glass, wood and stainless steel, the company’s autonomy ensures that its products reflect uncompromising quality as well as mindfully sustainable production.
Led by design director Émilie Cathelineau, CVL also collaborates with independent designers like Hervé Langlais, POOL and Kristian Gavoille. In collections ranging from Calé(e) to Saturne, the fixtures reflect a contemporary, and sometimes whimsical, take on classic French epochs like Art Deco. Often glossed with a favorite touch of golden brass, CVL’s offerings define a sense of panache with luxurious materials melded with ever-intriguing forms.
