Lambert & Fils

Lambert & Fils is a lighting-focused design studio based in Montreal. Founded by former video editor Samuel Lambert, the boutique workshop takes inspiration from modernism, industrialism, and the minimalist aesthetic tastes of its founder. It employs a small staff of designers who work on a range of commercial installations and projects alongside the core range of Lambert & Fils pieces. 

Samuel originally began by refurbishing and selling existing lamps and floor lights before moving on to designing from scratch five years ago. There are now six collections within the range: Beubien, Clark, Cliff, Dot, Waldorf, and Designer Invité. All have different characteristics based on style, colour, finish and material. Designer Invité is a collaborative collection which sees L&F working with other independent brands and designers on one-off items. 

Sight Unseen recently featured the brand on their website, commenting that the Clark light "is a task lamp which pushes the limits of form without sacrificing functionality. Using cut and bent sheet brass, a structure and a shade are created. An angled marble block anchors this brass form to create a subtle play of angles throughout the lamp. The two surfaces of the shade both block and reflect the lamp’s light source, casting an even wash of light on any table. Echoing the shape of a classic desk lamp, the Clark seamlessly blends the adventurous and the familiar.”
