La Lampe Gras
Designed in 1921 by Bernard-Albin Gras
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 such details as those of the arms, stems, brackets and bases were truly original and far ahead of his time. There are neither screws nor welded joints in the basic form.
Le Cobusier, along with other designers of the time, was seduced by the modern design + user-friendliness of the lamps. He used the GRAS lamps both in his own offices and in numerous architectural projects worldwide.
For the first time in history, a lamp was equally popular in professional as well as in residential applications. The lamps are models of balance, elegance + transparency.
Today, the GRAS lamp has become sought after as a collector’s item all over the world + has become an icon in the history of lighting.
Bernard-Albin Gras’s talented and visionary design has proven to be timeless.
