An icon of 20th century
In 1921 Bernard-Albin Gras designed a series of lamps for use in offices and in industrial environments. The Lampe GRAS, as it was subsequently called, was astounding in its simple, robust and yet very ergonomic design. There are neither screws nor welded joints in the basic form.

In 1927 the Ravel company purchased the patent and started production of the Lampe GRAS. Bernard-Albin Gras was one of the most innovative designer of the 20th century. The functional esthetic of his lamps and especially the design of details such as those of the articulated brackets, supports and bases were truly origi- nal and far ahead of his time.

Early on Le Corbusier was seduced by the modern design and userfriendliness of the lamps and became one of Bernard-Albin Gras’ 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 this trend as well. Furthermore, such well-known artists as Sonia Delaunay and Georges Braque also used these lamps in their studios.

For the first time in history, a lamp was equally popular in professional as well as in residential applications. Today, the Lampe GRAS has become sought after a collector’s item all over the world, most notably in France, in the United States and in Japan. Bernard-Albin Gras’ talented and visionary design has proven to be time- less.

dcw. Éditions has acquired exclusive rights for the range of Lampes GRAS.
