DCW éditions is part of the exhibition "Double Je" at Palais de Tokyo in Paris from 24th of March to 16th of May 2016. Several lights of the collections Lampe Gras and In The Tube are displayed throughout the exhibition, giving to the different scenes a special atmosphere.

After L’Usage des formes, in 2015, Palais de Tokyo is displaying once more its interest in the connections between the artisans of art, designers and visual artists in this exhibition derived from a short story, especially written by the young and already famous crime-writer Franck Thilliez.

Starting from the pre-textual postulate that an artisan of art, an artist... and a criminal have the same obsessive fascination for details, the show dives into the daily, private existences of the professions of art, while at the same time telling a detective story, plotted by Franck Thilliez.

As opposed to traditional scenography, the staging of the exhibition will display both the studios and living spaces of two artisans of art, as well as a crime scene. The context of this scene is cutting-edge artisanship, close to new technologies. In this setting, each object on show is a work of art or design, while also being a clue leading the visitors to piece together the crime scenario in an attempt to solve the mystery.

« Les acrobates de GRAS » are adept at doing tricks high in the air, way above the ground.
The high wire flyers (№ 323) do the acrobatics,
the diagonals adding dynamism and fun to the spectacle.
The catcher is concentrated and reliable (№ 322) as it receives the flyers.
The spectacle is impressive, full of movement, rhythm and colour.

The colours and shapes of the Lampe Gras reflector-shades (L, XL size) are elegant and sharp.
« Les acrobates de GRAS » can be combined with each other
letting everyone make their own model.

Let the show begin !

Bernard-Albin Gras never designed furniture!
He invented his eponymous lamp for a variety of uses which is why they have found their way into machines, offices, stairways, ships and architects’ houses…

So what then is Le mobilier de Gras (the Gras range of furniture) ?

It is the start of something new: a selection of furniture in keeping with the Lampe Gras.
Furniture that is functional, well designed, devoid of ego, resistant and serviceable in the sense that it serves the person who uses it.
Like Lampe Gras, the furniture can also be deflected from its original function : a nightstand (Plug and Dream) can become a consol in an entrance (Plug and Welcome) ; the desk (Plug and Work) can become a freestanding counter (Plug and Drink).

Designed to stand the test of time, designed to wear with age, but not to show its age, the “mobilier de Gras” range uses simple but solid materials: steel, wood, rubber.

Installation is simple and efficient.

History

La Lampe Gras, icon of the 20th century
In 1921 Bernard-Albin GRAS designed a series of lamps for use in offices and in industrial environments. The GRAS lamp , as it was subsequently called, was astounding in its simple, robust and yet very ergonomic design. There are neither screws nor welded joints in the basic form. In 1927 the Ravel company purchased the patent and started production of the GRAS lamps. Bernard- Albin Gras was one of the most innovative designer of the 20th century. The functional esthetic of his lamps and especially the de- sign of details such as those of 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. Others such as Robert Mallet-Stevens, Jacques Emile Ruhlmann and Eileen Gray followed this trend as well. Furthermore, such well-know artists as Sonia Delaunay and Georges Braque also used these lamps in their studios. For the first time in history, a lamp was equally popular in professional as well as in residential applications. Today, the GRAS lamp has become sought after a collector’s item all over the world, most notably in France, in the United States and in Japan. Bernard-Albin Gras’s talented and visionary design has proven to be timeless.
