Many people say now is the best time to be an artist because we are more connected now than before, I am inclined to agree. There are a few downsides to be connected and living in these times too. It can be hard to feel original because everything has already been done. I can honestly say that sometimes I struggle with that too. Here is a perfect example of how one Montreal based design studio took that issue and used it to their advantage.
Lambert et Fils is a Montreal-based lighting design studio founded in 2010 by Samuel Lambert. The studio’s original and custom lamps for residential and commercial settings take cues from mid-century Modernism, the Industrial Age, and Lambert’s own minimalist aesthetic. The studio revisits iconic motifs across the range of these influences to create its own distinctive collections.
Above you can see the perfect example of how they solved that problem. The Bauhaus milk globe lighting inspiration very clear but you can also see Lambert's own vision and process by the use of material and added shapes brought a fresh approach, truly inspiring.
