Lampe Sphere Givree
Product code: NB4670
It was in 1898 that the amazing Lampe Berger story started.
In response to a major preoccupation at that time - a sepsis in
hospitals - Maurice Berger, a pharmaceutical dispenser, invented a
system of diffusion by catalysis, for which he filed a patent. This
revolutionary technology, which purifies the air in enclosed rooms, was
soon to be applied for private use, giving birth to the Lampe Berger
The little lamp which destroys bad smells saw its apogee during
the1930s: fragrance provided the dimension of pleasure; the Lampe Berger
became a collector’s item, each lamp being associated with a designer
and major manufacturer such as Cristal de Baccarat, Cristalleries de
Saint Louis, Emile Gallé, René Lalique, and then the top porcelain
producers of the 1950s… Coco Chanel, Jean Cocteau, Colette or Picasso
each had their own Lampe Berger.
This lamp in lacquered glass with hollow spot design directly into the
glass, then sand blasted, for a frosted effect. Nod to the work of
master glass-makers and to the decoration from the 19th and early 20th
centuries, recalling for example the ornament. Lamp sold in a box, with
1 catalytic burner, 1 stopper and 1 funnel.
