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 company.

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.
