Lambert & Fils unveils Laurent at ICFF 2016 in New York–a reinterpretation of the classic globe pendant lamp

April 22, 2016

Montreal’s Lambert & Fils launches Laurent, a new lighting fixture marking the studios second showing at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), in New York, May 14 – 17, 2016.

After last years successful premier, Lambert & Fils returns to ICFF with its newest lighting design that combines glass opalescent spheres with bold lines to create a volumetric presence. The studio explored new materials, like chrome and acrylic, to shape this sculptural lighting fixture.

Established in 2010, as a small storefront workshop in Montreal, Lambert & Fils has evolved from applied designs where the composite parts often dictated the final form to a more conceptual approach. While Bauhaus and Modernism continue to be familiar inspirations for the studio, with Laurent, Lambert & Fils takes a distinctly contemporary tack.

The studio distills a globe pendants duality between sphere and circle to its essence. In keeping with its commitment to working with local, skilled trades, the team called upon the expertise of a Quebec glass blower to craft this latest piece. An adjustable suspension system of wires and anchors allows the pendants final form to vary, from a pure, minimalist orb to something more intricate and Art Deco. Our research focused on the surface and the form. Here, the globe acts as the link between the two, says Samuel Lambert, the studios founder and lead designer. The different variations make it an apt lighting fixture for the home as well as for applications in the public realm where Laurent can really take on its fullest dimension through a rhythmic repetition.

Lambert & Fils lighting fixtures already shine in numerous boutiques and restaurants around the world, including the Hotel Bachaumont in Paris. After earning a North-American-wide following, Lambert & Fils lamps now bare the CE marking and are available in Europe too.

Meet the Lambert & Fils family! Join us at the Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) at New York’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Centre from May 14 to 17, 2016, Booth 1454 (Level 1.)
