Model Lapierre L60 projector from 1958
In 1848, Auguste Lapierre opened a small tinsmith workshop in Paris, which quickly specialized in the manufacture of magic lanterns. In 1860, he filed a patent for “ the application of metal stamping ”, which enabled him to produce inexpensive lanterns in large quantities.
Throughout the second half of the 19th century, numerous models of lanterns manufactured by Auguste, then by his eldest son and successor Edouard Virgile , ensured the prosperity of the Manufacture d'Optique Lapierre.
Naturally Lapierre also offers projection and magnification devices, cameras, professional cinematographic devices (including English-made cameras) and films.
Composed of a steel and modular wooden tripod, a metal bent tubular arm and a power cable fitted with a switch. It finds its place on the floor.
Graphic and refined, the Simonne Lapierre is a unique piece. Its minimalist design is the work of the Monsieur Lumière design studio.
