Lampe Berger - more than a century of innovations

View Instructions of Use Here

Each lamp comes with a full set of instructions.

The air is even more pleasant when, like Lampe Berger, you are celebrating 110 years of innovation. The first Lampe Berger lamp was created in 1898 by Maurice Berger, a pharmacy dispenser, to purify the air in hospital wards.

Living conditions improved and cleansing of premises became an important preoccupation. The Lampe Berger lamp was to contribute effectively to the disinfection of hospitals from 1907 onwards. It was then seen in houses requiring the air to be cleaned.

1930: Fragrance began to provide a pleasurable dimension; the taste for beautiful objects also reached its peak and the Lampe Berger lamp became a collector's item.

Jean Cocteau and Pablo Picasso were the first “well-known people” to appreciate it.

Then came innovations concerning the exploration of materials like porcelain and a widening of the range to make Lampe Berger accessible to all. A new direction was given at the beginning of the 1980s with a fruitful cooperation with designers, who conveyed a modern touch.

In 1996 the company became structured: a Research and Development department was created in order to continue to improve product performance. Since that date, innovations have been continuous and are systematically patented worldwide, in more than 20 countries.

Interview by Corinne Gomez, Research and Development Manager, LAMPE BERGER, Doctor of Chemistry "The unparalleled performances of Lampe Berger lamps are proof of the effectiveness of the destruction of undesirable odours as well as the quality, finesse, speed and duration of the perfuming of a room.

Well Being and Pleasure in the Home

Feeling good at home contributes to our day-to-day well-being. Lampe Berger makes it possible to improve air quality and to fragrance it. In this way it contributes to the creation of a pleasant olfactory environment. To benefit fully from this well being, there are 3 simple steps:

1. Lampe Berger recommends the essentials for improving the quality of interior air: 

  • Air rooms regularly (at home and also in the office) in order to renew the interior air 
  • Vacuum frequently, particularly if you have rugs or carpets > Keep surfaces dust-free 
  • Avoid smoking in the home 
  • Have boilers serviced annually 
  • Regularly clean all vents and ventilation grilles, and all the heating or ventilation system filters 
  • Do not overheat the house. The temperature usually recommended is 66°F. 
  • Using deodorizes is not an exemption from following good hygiene practices.

2. Eliminate unpleasant odors, tobacco, cooking etc. Evaluate the olfactory well-being of your living environment: we invite you to perform the “Air Diagnosis” available on our website.

3. Perfume the house with the home fragrance of your choice.

Cleaner, perfumed air in the home LAMPE BERGER, the leader in innovations for air care, cleanses the room air by destroying unwanted odors and providing long-lasting fragrance, due to its exclusive diffusion system.

By eliminating unpleasant smelling molecules (tobacco, cooking, etc.), LAMPE BERGER cleanses the interior air in your home.

Unlike any other system, which merely masks the odors, the LAMPE BERGER diffusion system makes it possible to destroy, by catalytic oxidation, the molecules causing the odors of tobacco and cooking, and other domestic odors.

• The heat developed by the catalysis attracts the unpleasant smelling molecules to it and breaks them down.

• The catalyst of the burner supports the oxidation of these molecules and prevents them from recombining .

The results of the efficiency of a Lampe Berger lamp in deodorizing a smoky atmosphere were proved by IAP Sentic in July 2006. Cigarette smoke is particularly representative in this test because it contains most of the molecules found in bad smells.

>> Fragrances the house LAMPE BERGER technology, a patented innovation, allows extremely fine diffusion of the home fragrance into the room, giving unequalled, fast, long-lasting and homogeneous performance.

The high standards for the selection and quality of the raw materials used, the internal norms and the systematic controls at all stages of manufacture are guarantees of the safety of use of LAMPE BERGER home fragrances.

20 to 30 minutes of diffusion => several hours of well-being. i.e. a maximum of 1 minute of operation per m3

Only 20 to 30 minutes for 2 hours’ perfuming in a 30 m3 (12m2) room.

The principal part of the LAMPE BERGER diffusion system is the AIR PUR System 3C® burner. The innovations, formalized in 6 international patents, represented by the burner in the improvement of interior air quality underline its difference.

The Catalysis

LAMPE BERGER undertakes constant research to improve the performance of its products. Its work concerns catalysis, i.e. the Lampe Berger operating system, the catalyst, the catalysis medium, the home fragrances, which feed the combustion and the lamps. Lampe Berger has committed to the A.I.S.E industry initiative Air Fresheners Stewardship Programm.

Catalysis

Catalytic combustion is a flameless combustion, which takes place because of the action of a catalyst.

A catalyst accelerates a chemical reaction. It also makes it possible to reduce the energy required for activation and thus to work at much lower temperatures than otherwise necessary for the same reaction. In this way energy consumption is limited.

Generally a catalytic system is made up of: • a porous medium which must have the largest possible specific surface, because the reaction takes place at the interface between the gaseous fluid and the solid. • an active phase, generally a metal or an oxide which provides active sites, where the chemical reaction takes place.

The most well-known example of this is the catalytic converter: it aims to prevent the formation of products, present in exhaust gases, that are harmful to health, and to convert them to limit air pollution. Catalysis is used in the manufacturing processes of about 80% of products in everyday use: lotions, gels, creams, mousses, soaps or shampoos to mention only cosmetics.

The catalytic medium chosen by LAMPE BERGER is the ceramic in the AIR PUR System 3C® burner. It is the result of several years of research. Its regular, constant porosity plays an important part in ensuring efficient cleansing of the air and the quality of the diffusion of the home fragrances.

1. The catalyst chosen by LAMPE BERGER is a precious metal : platinum. It is present on the outer part of the burner.

The ceramic medium, equipped with the catalyst or catalytic burner, will make cleaning of the air in the home and destruction of odors possible.

Interview by Corinne Gomez, Research and Development Manager, LAMPE BERGER, Doctor of Chemistry

“The catalysis area is heated homogeneously to about 500°C, which allows catalytic oxidation of isopropanol and ensures destruction of the odors."
