Lampe Gras is the original architect light. Designed in 1921 by Bernard-Albin Gras, these lamps quickly gained cult status with the French avant garde and intelligentsia. Designated a ‘type-objet’, that is, an object reduced to its pure function, by the French architect Le Corbusier, who used Lampes Gras in his own offices as well as many of his most famous projects, these lights were favorites of Matisse and Picasso, as well as the designer Eileen Grey and other well known modernist artists.
This is #205, the all chrome articulated table light.
Fully extended, this lamp measures 30.5″ tall. The base is 7″ at its widest point. The shade is 5.5″ in diameter.
