Serge Mouille 1922 – 1988

Born in Paris in 1922 Serge Mouille attended the School of Applied Arts starting at just 13-years-old, where he learnt the arts of silversmithing and metallurgy. At 15 he studied with famous silversmith Gabriel Lacroix and later gained his diploma in the subject. Changing his focus to lighting design, Mouille was commissioned by Jacques Adnet to create lighting designs in reaction to the complicated Italian designs that flooded the market in the 1950s. He produced his lighting by hand and during his lifetime was awarded with many prizes including the Charles Plumet Prize in 1955. The Hollywood actor Henry Fonda was so impressed with Mouille’s designs that he literally insisted that Mouille created a lamp for him, refusing to leave his premises until he agreed to carry out the commission. Mouille eventually returned to his first love silversmithing and became director of the silversmith department at the School of Applied Arts.
