The Greatest Inventor
A Unique Invention over 100 years ago..... in Paris, France
INVENTED OVER 100 YEARS AGO....
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.
A GUARANTEE OF QUALITY
Ever attentive to all aspects of quality, Lampe Berger makes it a rule to diffuse into the air only substances that are perfectly mastered and controlled. Tests carried out regularly by an independent laboratory attest to the absence of fumes and the detection of BTEX (benzene, styrene, naphthalene,formaldehyde and acetaldehyde) during diffusion.
The ingredients contained in our Home Fragrances are subject to specific internal standards that are more stringent than those demanded by European and American pharmacopoeia and by the IFRA (International Fragrances Association).
An essential guarantee for people who are concerned about the air that they breathe and which few products can claim to provide.
Concerned about the well-being of its consumers, Lampe Berger also emphasises great importance to the proper labeling of its products, in compliance with regulations.
Indeed, Lampe Berger routinely conducts checks upon receipt of each lamp body. If it is a craft process as producing a porcelain body, 100% manual control is performed, while a control sample is provided in relation to a more industrial process.
All lamps are tested by the Lampe Berger factory for watertight before being packaged and shipped worldwide.
A UNIQUE TECHOLOGY
Thanks to its exclusive burner perfected over the years, there is no equal to Lampe Berger today for cleansing air in the home by truly destroying undesirable smells, while at the same time diffusing delicate indoor fragrances.
This burner is the result of ongoing research and is subject to 6 international patents.
In recent years, Lampe Berger has also installed a technical center in Limoges, capital of ceramics, where a team is dedicated to research and development in the field of catalysis.
