First manufactured in 1921, the original Gras lamp was created purely for machine-age tasks. However, architects and designers in Europe soon adopted it, responding to its combination of function and form. The Lampe Gras design has remained unchanged for 90 years and has transitioned seamlessly from progressive and forward-thinking then, to timeless and relevant for today’s modern interiors. Finally, this collection has been introduced by Holly Hunt for the first time outside of Europe, offering a unique blend of heritage and innovation to a whole new generation.
First created in the Industrial Age, these lamps still look fresh 90 years later—and that’s because they effortlessly blend form and function. Both floor and table models possess slim, pared-down lines, and are made of strong steel—available in brushed, chromed, black- or white-painted finishes. Each blends perfectly with either traditional or modern decor. We especially love the one with an unexpected color infusion: a bright red cord.
