Max Sauze

Max Sauze was born in 1933 in Algeria. He first attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Algiers between 1953 and 1956, and then went on to study at the famous Ecole Camondo in Paris, France from 1956 until 1959.

During the 70s he quickly established his own recognisable style through the construction of bent aluminium strips on steel wire structures. Some Max Sauze lamps were also made in copper, such as the Mars and the Orion, and several others.

Today Ekilux, the company of his son Sebastien Sauze relaunched production of the iconic slatted aluminium lamps designed by his father at the end of the 60s. Ekilux is located in Provence in the South of France.

The Almeco Group France produces the lamps in Bandoxal (anodised aluminium).
