"Living in a historic R.M. Schindler apartment in Los Angeles may be architecturally desirable, but for designer Gabriel Abraham, it did have one drawback: "The walls and ceiling were made of plywood, so it was very hard to install lighting fixtures." Abraham found inspiration in a photograph of the Potence lamp that French modernist architect Jean Prouve designed in 1950 for his La Maison Tropicale, a prefab metal house design erected in the Congo. The Potence, which is nearly 7 feet long, has been reissued by Vitra and sells for $1,560.

Working on a more modest budget, Abraham crafted his own, smaller version of the wall-mounted swiveling lamp, shown in the Schindler apartment above.

"Friends got to like it, so I started to make them as gifts and it caught on," Abraham says.

Now he produces small quantities in Los Angeles. The bent-steel lamps are available in black, white, gray and a natural oil-rubbed finish with 3- or 4-foot arms ($375 and $450). He also builds custom sizes.
