The air is even more pleasant when, like Lampe Berger, you are celebrating 110 years of innovation. The first Lampe Berger lamp was created in 1898 by Maurice Berger, a pharmacy dispenser, to purify the air in hospital wards. Living conditions improved and cleansing of premises became an important preoccupation. The Lampe Berger lamp was to contribute effectively to the disinfection of hospitals from 1907 onwards. It was then seen in houses requiring the air to be cleaned.
1930: Fragrance began to provide a pleasurable dimension; the taste for beautiful objects also reached its peak and the Lampe Berger lamp became a collector’s item. Jean Cocteau and Pablo Picasso were the first “well-known people” to appreciate it.
Then came innovations concerning the exploration of materials like porcelain and a widening of the range to make Lampe Berger accessible to all. A new direction was given at the beginning of the 1980s with a fruitful cooperation with designers, who conveyed a modern touch.
In 1996 the company became structured: a Research and Development department was created in order to continue to improve product performance. Since that date, innovations have been continuous and are systematically patented worldwide, in more than 20 countries.
