THE CATALYSIS, a unique technology…
Thanks to its exclusive patented burner, the lampe Berger purifies and perfumes the air in enclosed spaces like no other system. Indeed, this diffusion by catalysis truly destroys the molecules responsible for undesirable smells. In this way, perfuming is fast, consistent and long-lasting in a room even when it is large in volume.
Over 100 years of history…
It was in 1898 , that the amazing Lampe Berger story started.
In response to a major preoccupation at that time – a sepsis 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 apogee during the1930s: fragrance provided the dimension of pleasure; 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.
A company which, since then, has always continued to develop and reinvent itself in order to be more than ever present for people living in the 21st century.
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 – distributed in 56 countries, present in 7,000 sales outlets around the world.
