It perfectly matches the specifications: simple, robust and articulated in order to adapt itself to all workstations. With this great invention, from to , he industrialise the production. In , he creates a company dedicated to the marketing of his lamp and whose initials make the name: Ji eL Dé. Since that date, this lamp called 'Standard' by customers, never ceased to be produced and to evolve. Died in , he will not see, in the 1990s, its successors to get the 'Standard' off its purely industrial context. Floor lamp, reading lamp, wall lamp, bright colours, the Standard became Loft.

Made in Lyon, France, with the same old gestures, each one is numbered in order to remain a unique artwork.
