It was in 1898, that the amazing Lampe Berger story started. In response to a major preoccupation at that time - asepsis in hospitals - Maurice Berger, a pharmaceutical dispenser, invented a system of diffusion by catalysis, for which he filed a patent. This revolutionary technology, which purifies the air in enclosed rooms was soon to be applied for private use, giving birth to the Lampe Berger company.
The little lamp which destroys bad smells saw its peak during the 1930s; the Lampe Berger became a collector's item, each lamp being associated with a designer and major manufacturer such as Cristal de Baccarat, Cristalleries de Saint Louis, Emile Gallé, René Lalique, and then the top porcelain producers of the 1950s. Coco Chanel, Jean Cocteau, Colette or Picasso each had their own Lampe Berger.
With over 5 million litres of fragrances and 800,000 lamps sold every year around the world, Lampe Berger is still a huge success over a century after it was invented.
Always a French company from the start, Lampe Berger enjoys a truly international reputation.
