Founded in 2010, Lambert & Fils is one of the world’s leading contemporary lighting studios. They create original collections and collaborate with emerging designers around the world. Preserving the bond between design and making, all lighting is handmade in the Lambert & Fils atelier in the heart of Montreal.
Through its exploration of new design technologies, Lambert & Fils investigates the many shapes of light—meditating on voids, volumes and the importance of matiere premiere—materials as a point of origin. The studio has created installations around the world, taking over display windows for Paris Design Week, hosting a six-day pop-up café for Milan’s Fuorisalone, and devising a grand floral installation at Stockholm Design Week.
Working by hand empowers the studio to push boundaries. Lambert & Fils dream in materials, they prototype in-house, and create the technologies and manufacturing approaches to bring the imagined forms to life.
The Montreal atelier is in a constant state of experimentation—explorations that have powered experiential lighting environments and award-winning collections.
Lambert & Fils hosts a multidisciplinary team of over 50 designers, fabricators, artists and creatives. In 2019, they launched Corridor, a gallery adjacent to their Montreal atelier that explores the intersection of art and design. Our atelier is also the host of the Lambert & Fils LAB, a guided workshop series that invites employees to explore new materials, methods of production and forms of artistic expression.
Samuel Lambert founded Lambert & Fils in 2010, when he opened up a small design shop on Rue Beaubien in Montreal. Growing up in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Lambert spent his childhood observing his father, a ceramic artist, at his home studio. The legacy came full-circle shortly after the birth of his youngest son, as Lambert began gathering his original designs under a new concept—Lambert & Fils (Lambert & Sons).
Nearly a decade later, Lambert & Fils has become one of the world’s most energized hubs for collaborative design. Samuel Lambert continues to lead the studio as Artistic Director. His humility, fascination with materials and commitment to the handmade remains at the heart of Lambert & Fils.
