Lampe Gras Lighting
In 1922 Bernard-Albin GRAS designed a series of lamps for use in offices & in industrial environments. The Gras lamp, as it was called, was astounding in its simple, robust & ergonomic design. In 1927 the Ravel company purchased the patent & started production of the Lampe GRAS lamps.
Bernard- Albin Gras was one of the most innovative designers of the 20th century. The functional aesthetic of his lamps & design details were truly original & ahead of their time. Early on Le Corbusier was seduced by the modern design & user-friendliness of the lamps becoming one of Lampe 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. Well-known artists, such as Sonia Delaunay & Georges Braque have also used these lamps in their studios. For the first time in history, a lamp was equally popular for both professional & residential applications.
