    The Famous Lampe Berger


    Lampe Berger is the oldest and most effective way to remove bacteria and odours from the air you breathe. The original Lampe Berger lamp was designed in France in 1898 by pharmaceutical dispenser, Maurice Berger, for use in hospitals as a way of removing air-borne bacteria and combating sepsis.

    Redesigned by famous designers, embraced by leading figures from the art community (Coco Chanel, Picasso, Colette and Jean Cocteau), it was then fitted with a perfuming function and gradually became a style icon, appreciated for its sleek design and its delicate fragrances.

    The Lampe Berger is a functional and attractive accessory which has spanned the years, purifying indoor air and adding an elegant or contemporary touch to every home.

    How to Have a More Sustainable Christmas

    Christmas is traditionally the period of peak consumption, when we go all out on gifts and food to impress our families and guests. You can, however, have a more sustainable Christmas season without having to sacrifice any magic or festivity.
