Genêt et Michon was a French lighting manufacturer founded in 1911 by Philippe Genêt and Lucien Michon. After testing, they found that thick-pressed glass increased the number of reflections and brightness of light more than other types of thin glass. They were pioneers of the suspended luminous sphere and made ceiling dalles, lamps, lustres, wall brackets, epergnes, and illuminated frieze. Their work was shown at the Salons of the Société des Artistes Décorateurs from 1922 to 1938, the Salons d’Automne from 1922 to 1924, and other events.
He was an engineer at Tompson before setting up the small electrical firm Perfécla (Perfectionnement de I’Ecla), regularly working with architects and designers, including Pierre Chareau, and André Lurcat, René Herbst, and architect Robert Mallet-Stevens. For the latter, he produced the widely published 1929 lighting fixture designed by Francis Jourdain in the form of a suspended concave metal ring projecting rays onto the ceiling and reflecting a soft indirect light elsewhere.
