Highly maneuverable, thanks to the dual arms that form the 317's iconic body, the DCW Editions Lampe Gras 317 Table Lamp is a piece that is rich with heritage. First designed in 1921, the Lampe Gras family of lighting offers a truly beautiful take on lamp design, fusing historical industrial design aesthetics with a hyper-functional form factor. The shade of the lamp is fully rotatable, offering a wide depth and range of illumination for all manner of situations, while the minimalist shape of the piece makes it the ideal object for the modern home or workplace.
Bernard-Albin Gras was one of the most innovative designers of the 20th century. The functional esthetic of his lamps and especially the design of details such as the arms, stems, brackets and bases were truly original and far ahead of his time.
Early on Le Corbusier was seduced by the modern design and user-friendliness of the lamps and became one of Bernard-Albin Gras’s most enthusiastic supporters using the lamps in his own offices as well as employing them in numerous architectural projects all over the world.
