Necessity is the mother of invention. This saying holds true for Maurice Berger and his creation of the fragrance lamp in 1897, who did so to improve the odour of hospitals in his day. Lampe Berger, the company he founded, quickly became the finest producer of fragrance lamps and has since become the oldest while maintaining the brand’s exquisite quality and design sensibilities.
As times have changed, so has the purpose of Lampe Berger’s signature product. No longer tools of the medical world, fragrance lamps were popularized as personal air fresheners by some of the most influential designers and artists of all time. This evolution allowed Lampe Berger to embrace and enhance home décor, further refining its status as a fine home accent. Dominant in its field to this day, Lampe Berger is truly one of France’s most unique and creative contributions to lifestyle and decor.
