Lambert & Fils Launches The Mile at IDS

Montréal, Canada

Lambert & Fils

New collaboration with Guillaume Sasseville


Montréal, Canada, 2017-12-12 -

Lambert & Fils announces The Mile, a new collection designed in collaboration with Guillaume Sasseville, Creative Director of Montreal-based studio SSSVLL. Sasseville is renowned for his exploring archetypes and injecting them with wit and resonance. “We invited Guillaume to fuse with our team and creative process”, says Samuel Lambert the lighting design studio’s Founder and Creative Director. “He worked seamlessly alongside our studio’s designers, manufacturers and assemblers.”

 

For The Mile, the designers explored the iconic linear suspension light, typically found in offices, workshops and other unadorned, utilitarian spaces. They distilled the classic archetype to its core functionality and reimagined its design as a poetic, sculptural expression both in its form and in the way its light illuminates a space.

 

“Two extruded bodies connect in an asymmetrical balancing act giving them the illusion of weightlessness. The invisible counterbalance inside the frame creates a tension and makes the fixture seem like it’s levitating”, says Sasseville. The designers replaced the archetype’s classic use of suspension cables with nylon braided electric cords, intertwining form and function.

 

Typically, linear suspension lights are functional apparatuses that supply precise levels of illumination in workplaces with up and down lighting. The Mile’s design preserves these features but brings them into the decorative realm. “In every collection, Lambert & Fils aims to stir and tease onlookers’ emotions and memories,” says Lambert, “There’s something reminiscent about The Mile. The collection’s persistent functional undertones illicit emotional response: it’s a new form but at the same time familiar.”  

 

The Mile’s strong sculptural presence is suited for both commercial and residential spaces. It was conceived with the possibility of ongoing threading for a seamless and dramatic effect or to be hung as a stand-alone sculptural accent.

 

Lambert & Fils will be partnering with its Toronto-based dealer, Klaus, for its North American premier of The Mile at Toronto’s Interior Design Show (IDS), January 18 to 21, 2018. 
 

About Lambert & Fils

Lambert et Fils is a lighting design studio based in Montréal. The simplicity of its graceful, poetic lights is born of meticulous design explorations at every stage of development as it strives to create an emotional rapport between the human and the object. Its collections are conceived, designed and hand-assembled in its atelier in Montréal.

 

About SSSVLL 

Since 2008, Guillaume Sasseville has been engaged in a search for the common - that point of resonance where materials, objects, spaces, and uses strike a chord. His work, imbued with a profound respect for the artisan’s craft, harnesses the sensuous potential of industrial processes. The resulting designs have extremely refined archetypal forms, tinged with subtle humour, where the complexity of process fades into the background to disclose a precious experience.


About Klaus

Klaus is a leading contemporary design store based in Toronto servicing both local and international clientele. Based in the historic Nienkamper showroom that founded what is now the Design District, Klaus represents acclaimed and recognized collections from Canada and around the world.
