We’ve already shared some catchy lamps by DCW Editions, and today we are featuring one more – the GRAS lamp.
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 arms, stems, brackets and bases were truly original and far ahead of his time. 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. There are neither screws nor welded joints in the basic form.
This is a reincarnation of the famous GRAS lamp, it’s an outdoor range, a very special collection made of stainless steel. These lights don’t light up a wall, but are used to create a living area – like for example when they are placed over an outdoor table – and in the process go to create a natural extension to the interior. The proportions of the Lampes Gras XL are scaled for outdoor use, in keeping with the facades or terraces which they are placed.
