Feu de camp is a lighting installation inspired by boy scouts and childhood imagination, presented with Swiss designer Adrien Rovero. An exploration of shape and materials, Feu de camp invited Rovero to imagine a lighting series using simple yet refined elements like tubes, elastics, and electrical wires.

Evoking the archetype of the flashlight, each lamp is a playful reminder of time spent in nature, when a simple piece of string or a wooden block could be used to fashion any number of creations. These makeshift things, at once naive and functional, harness the humility and unique beauty of peeling an object back to its essence.

Uncover the magic of childhood as we explore the designer’s quiet and mysterious forms.

Corridor is a new Montreal gallery founded by Lambert et Fils, with a mandate to foster meaningful exchange between art and design. It aims to spark dialogue about how these practices can coalesce in significant ways, and will do so through exhibitions, talks, and exchanges by influential designers and artists from Montreal and around the world.

More than a gallery, Corridor is also a space for Lambert & Fils’ own creative experimentation and a testing ground for new concepts. It is a space open to collaboration with architects, artists, designers, and other professionals, where Lambert & Fils can bring significant knowledge, skill, and resources towards the realization of unique and complex projects.
