Jean Louis Domecq started work on the Jieldé design in 1950. He does this out of frustration because he cannot find a good lamp for his work as a mechanic. He wants a simple, robust and distinct design that is able to adapt to any work situation. In 1952 production was sufficiently industrialized and the Jieldé company was born. The company name is derived from the designer's initials, JLD.
The pivot points are a technical masterpiece. In the first half of the last century there were many accidents due to breakage of wiring in lamps. This is because no insulation materials have been used yet. Jieldé's first brochure shows that copper discs are used at the pivot points of these lamps instead of electric wire. As a result, there is never a possibility of wire breakage, even with intensive use. This was a groundbreaking invention for the time.
