US$990
A Pierre Giraudon (1923-2012) table lamp from the 1970s. A piece of bright red coral has been set in resin finished with chamfered edges. Pierre Giraudon was born in 1923. In the 1940s, while working as a biologist in Canada, he pioneered the inclusion of plants, animals, and other objects in resin using products of his own invention, primarily for academic purposes.

Returning to France in 1949, Giraudon began working with resin for his personal enjoyment, gradually incorporating his own artistic touches. As he mastered the medium, he started creating artworks. During the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, Giraudon produced sculptures, lamp bases, and other objects in colored resin, both with and without inclusions. Alongside his personal creations, he also collaborated with the artist César. Despite his artistic endeavors, Giraudon always rejected the label of "artist," considering himself foremost a biologist.
