In 1985, Anthony DeLorenzo of 1950 Gallery presented the very first Jean Prouvé & Serge Mouille exhibition in America at its Soho location in New York.
Since then, Alberto Aquilino has continued the gallery’s commitment to the collector, the architect and designer by offering authentic works by Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier, Serge Mouille, Isamu Noguchi, and George Nakashima. Recently 1950 Gallery has expanded its traditional scope with a recent exhibition of works by contemporary French ceramist Marianne Vissiere together with artists Cat Loray and Clement Borderie
Before being a creator Serge Mouille was preoccupied with the beauty of nature’s forms, their utility, their aesthetic interest and especially the movement which informs the order of their life, every shape has it function.
This is where the mobiles and the stabiles of Mouille were born, gratuitous objects destined to ornament, with no other reason but that of the artistic interpretation of the physical phenomenon of space.
Adapting these theoretical ideas to the practical order this excellent artist who was also a professor of the art of silver work at Ecole des Arts Appliques where he studied the problem of the diffusion of light in home interiors.
New forms were made clear under the firm hand of this accomplished artist, beginning with simple elements, Mouille created a whole world of variations. After the rational apparatus here is the aesthetic mobile wall lamp with pure function.
