Overview

The Lampe Gras was originally designed in 1921 by Bernard Albin-Gras for use in offices and industrial environments as a table lamp. It was astounding in its simple, robust and yet very ergonomic design. There were neither screws nor welded joints in the basic form.

Its distinct shade (either conic or round) and industrial design has made this collection a bestseller for most settings. The functionality and versatility of this statement wall lamp is amzing. Over a bedhead, at the edge of a desk or table… it’s up to you ! This model speaks for itself.

Bernard-Albin Gras

In 1921 Bernard-Albin GRAS designed a series of lamps for use in offices and in industrial environments. The GRAS lamp, as it was subsequently called, was astounding in its simple, robust and yet very ergonomic design with neither screws nor welded joints. In 1927 the Ravel company purchased the patent and started producing the GRAS lamp. Bernard-Albin Gras was one of the most innovative designers of the 20th century. The functional aesthetic of his lamps and especially the design of details such as those of the arms, stems, brackets and bases were truly original and far ahead of his time. Early on Le Corbusier was seduced by the modern design and functionality of the lamp and became one of Bernard-Albin GRAS’s most enthusiastic supporters using the lamps in his own offices as well as employing them in numerous architectural projects all over the world. Others such as Robert Mallet-Stevens, Jacques Emile Ruhlmann and Eileen Gray followed on. Well-known artists such as Sonia Delaunay and Georges Braque also used the Gras lamp in their studios. For the first time in history, a lamp was equally popular in professional and in residential settings. Bernard-Albin Gras’ talented and visionary design has proven to be timeless.
