Lambert & Fils will be flying to Italy in April for its first appearance at Euroluce, the lighting biennial hosted by Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, two exclusive collaborations will be unveiled : one with Quebec designer Guillaume Sasseville, and the other with Parisian gallery Armel Soyer.
Lambert & Fils not only embodies the Made in Montréal spirit perfectly, but has also managed to become, in just a few short years, an important figure in lighting on the international design scene.
The studio is thrilled to also have been selected for The Visit, an in-situ installation curated by renowned duo Studiopepe. The Visit’s chosen pieces will be exhibited in an apartment of the Brera Design District, where journalists and tradespeople will discover the best in contemporary design, staged in a unique way.

Laurent 11: an exclusive edition for Armel Soyer
The Laurent collection has had a very good run since it launched in 2016. After a warm welcome at New York City’s ICFF last May and at the Biennale Intérieur in Kortrijk, Belgium, in October, Laurent won an Interior Design Magazine’s Best of Year Award for lighting and was mentioned among the 10 Best Product Designs of the Year in Azure Magazine.
This astonishing journey will continue in Milan. Not only will the whole collection be presented at Euroluce, but Lambert & Fils will also reveal the majestic Laurent 11, numbered and exclusively created for the design and decorative arts gallery Armel Soyer.
Located in Paris (with a branch in the Alps), Armel Soyer showcases the work of innovative designers and artists sharing a common quest for quality, inspiration, rarity and exception.
Revisiting the classic Bauhaus shape of the opaline hand-blown glass sphere, Laurent offers a variation on minimalist surfaces and volumes, with delicate spheres shining against the rigid nature of its anchors.
Mile: a new collection with Guillaume Sasseville (Studio SSSVLL)
The Mile collection offers a variation on a the linear suspension. Mile’s two asymmetrical lines, separated by a pivot, create an object that’s part art installation and part utilitarian light.
"The use of linear DEL technology and the wires clamped into the structure add to the weightless, almost levitating feel of the lamp" says the invited designer.
A multi-talented designer trained in product design and luxury industry at the École cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ÉCAL, 2011), Guillaume Sasseville explores the sensuous potential of industrial processes to create extremely refined archetypal forms, often tinged with subtle humour.
Since they first met at NYC’s Wanted Design exhibit in 2012, Samuel Lambert and Guillaume Sasseville hoped to share their vision on a common project: today, Mile is born.
