Started in the 19th Century, Lampe Berger is still equally as famous and its secret is passed down from generation to generation. Often copied but never equalled. The only way to purify the air without overpowering perfume and chemicals. Lampe Berger's Mission: To Improve indoor air quality. Not by masking odors with another odor but by removing odors all together. Then the lamp can subtly perfume your air (or not add any perfume if you prefer, using the neutral scent bottle). Lampe Berger began in France in 1898 with a Parisian pharmacist, Maurice Berger. Trying to find a process to purify the air, he discovered the beneficial effect of the catalytic combustion of a specific product, ozoalcohol, and he filed the patent for a "new lamp system for purifying the air".Initially it was used only by the medical world for its antibacterial powers. At the same time, it came to interest the greatest designers of the time: Lalique, Galle, the Daum crystal glass works and Baccarat...The Lampe Berger became a feature at the salons of the Belle Epoque, and developed a new function, fragrancing, that made it even more popular.
