In addition to receiving a full project profile on our site, all seven winners of the 2014 Gardenista Considered Design Awards will be given a limited-edition Jieldé SI333 Signal Desk Lamp in Bronze (a powder-coated finish that was commissioned exclusively for us). We love the industrial chic of this iconic French lamp, and are confident our winners will, too.

A bit of history: The first Jieldé lamp was created in 1950 by Jean Louis Domecq, a designer in Lyon, France. Frustrated by the lack of heavy-duty, hardworking task lamps on the market, Domecq set out to design the most functional working lamp in the world. In the end, he created something that was not just functional, but also beautiful. In 2006, Jieldé introduced the Signal collection, including a line of smaller-scaled lamps for the home, in a range of finishes.
Above: The Jieldé SI333 Signal Desk Lamp is adjustable at each joint, with a base diameter of about 6 inches and two articulated arms, each about 12 inches long. The size is ideal for a home office or bedside use.
