Streamlined Light: Designs by Lambert & Fils of Montreal

September 10, 2014

Back in 2010, former video editor Samuel Lambert set out to open a Montreal lighting design studio devoted to interpreting midcentury and industrial shapes in a glamorous, minimalist way.

Although not from a formal design background, Lambert had always yearned for a way to work with his hands (his late father owned a pottery workshop). He started refurbishing vintage lamps and learned about the design and technical aspects, which eventually led to designing his own lights, fine-tuning his minimalist aesthetic, and founding Lambert & Fils.

Today the company has its own boutique and showroom on Beaubien Street, plus a separate manufacturing location. Lambert and his team make a range of lamps out of brass, powder-coated aluminum, and marble, and offer both custom and ready-made designs, all with a notably bare, elegant look. Here are a few highlights.
