Siren Table Lamp by Eileen Gray
The “Siren” table lamp, designed by Eileen Gray for Jumo.
This lamp is also referred to as the “Mermaid”.
Produced in France by Jumo between 1940-45.
A hugely influential designer, architect and artist, her design permeates all aspects of the subject today, a pleasure to handle something with her ethos behind it.
Highly original example, only rewired.
Born in 1878 near the small village of Enniscorthy, Ireland, Eileen Gray is one of 20th-century design’s most influential women. In 1898, Gray began attending painting classes at the Slade School of Fine Art in London, but she moved to Paris following an inspirational trip in which she discovered the Art Nouveau style. She continued her studies at the Academie Julian and Academie Colarossi, before returning to London to tend to her ailing mother and rejoin the Slade School.
