A few weeks back, I featured a collaboration between Kastella, a modern handmade furniture company and, Lambert & Fils, a lighting design studio, both based out of Montreal. I wanted to shine the light on both of these talented makers individually. First up, modern handmade lighting from Lambert & Fils.
Lambert & Fils is a Montreal-based lighting design studio founded in 2010 by Samuel Lambert. The studio’s original and custom lamps for residential and commercial settings take cues from mid-century Modernism, the Industrial Age, and Lambert’s own minimalist aesthetic. The studio revisits iconic motifs across the range of these influences to create its own distinctive collections.
Along with Lambert, the studio’s small group of designers collaborate in the creation of a constellation of floor, wall, and suspended lamps using brass, powder-coated aluminum, and marble. The studio extends its collection through a constant exploration of new materials, forms, and applications. With a contemporary take on its inspirations, Lambert & Fils commits itself to a tradition of quality, in-house design, and craftsmanship in lighting.
To see their work up close and personal, visit the aforementioned Kastella showroom, You can also visit their Special Projects page. It’s filled with custom modern handmade lighting projects that you can discover around Montreal. Their work will also be on display at the Euroluce, the lighting biennial hosted by Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. You’ll be able to see two exclusive collaborations their: one with Quebec designer Guillaume Sasseville, and the other with Parisian gallery Armel Soyer.
Lambert & Fils has also been selected for The Visit, an in-situ installation curated by renowned duo Studiopepe. The Visit’s chosen pieces will be exhibited in an apartment of the very unique Brera Design District, where journalists and tradespeople will discover the best in contemporary design, staged in a unique way. I want to go to there!
