"In 1921, Bernard-Albin Gras created a range of lamps for industry and design offices. The Lampe GRAS is astonishing by its ergonomics and the simplicity of its mechanics - no screws, no welding - which gives it foolproof robustness. But Bernard-Albin Gras is also one of the first designers of the twentieth century: not content to innovate, he adds an original functional aesthetic to his creations, particularly in the design of the bases and connecting rods. Early on Le Corbusier was seduced by the modern design and user-friendliness of the lamps and became one of Bernard-Albin GRAS’s most enthusiastic supporters using the lamps in his own offices as well as employing them in numerous architectural projects all over the world. The Lampe GRAS then became a legend.
