It all started in 1855, the company was called at the time Herbert Terry and Sons Ltd,
and produces commercial springs and castings.
It was in 1931 that engineer George Carwardine developed a concept
to balance the weights using the famous springs,
and by chance he proposes to create an articulated lamp that will combine flexibility and balance.
It is thanks to this pioneering mechanism developed in the 1930s and
this incomparable form that the patent was filed in 1933.

DCW éditions is an object editor: objects that have their roots in the past, thought today, to be projected in the future.
These objects have in common: well thought out, well designed, well made.
The object, everyday companion, thought to last, is a witness between the generations. Nostalgia is not the common thread of DCW éditions. Only the beautiful and the just are eternal.
The collections dialogue surprisingly with each other: Lampe Gras, Mantis, In The Tube, the ISP lamp, Here Comes the Sun, Les Acrobates de Gras, MbE mirrors ...
"DCW éditions publishes timeless objects, which do not give in to the sirens of the times."
Philippe Cazer and Frédéric Winkler, founders of DCW éditions
Beginning of the adventure.
We started editing with the work of inventor Bernard-Albin Gras, with the GRAS lamp, the starting point for twentieth century lighting, the first articulated lamp in history and acclaimed by Le Corbusier. Then we launched the Surpil chair by Julien-Henri Porché, elegance requires.
In 2013, we are publishing Mantis lamps, “mobile sculptures” by Bernard Schottlander, created in 1951. A true tribute to Alexander Calder, the Mantis forever mark the 1950s.
In 2014, we are launching the first OUTDOOR GRAS Lamps in size XL.
From a fruitful collaboration with architect Dominique Perrault and designer Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost, IN THE TUBE was born, a collection of mega-performing tubes that evokes spy components like James Bond, or shuttles like Jules Verne .
2017 is a great moment for us. We present the ISP lamp by Ilia Potemine. Just 30 years old, inventor, engineer, artist ... It's been a long time since we have seen such an object. A luminaire that has its roots in the past, that is thought and designed today, to be projected in the future. This light shuttle takes us through time and space. For us, Ilia is most likely an artist-engineer who will be collected by future generations. We are rather proud…
Already 9 years have passed. The adventure goes on.
We always talk about objects and never about products, always about everyday companion objects: well thought out, well designed, well made and at the right price. Our fundamentals have not changed.
Our editions are not intended to please everyone, but there are enough of us in this world to allow these particular objects to exist.
We are excited to present the BINY by Jacques Biny, the “atmospheric” collection IN THE SUN and the new ITT 360 ° tubes with flaps and wings by Dominique Perrault and Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost, as well as the start of the NEW COLLECTION by Eric de Dormael.

have now become great icons of 20th century design.

Founded in 1927 in Châtillon-sur-Saône in the French Vosges, Sammode designs lighting solutions that have come to be seen as an industry benchmark. The company’s head office is located in Paris, and all of its products are Made-in-France. With full control of the entire production chain, Sammode proclaims its unique status as a designer-manufacturer loud and proud. This status guarantees the performance, functionality and quality of its luminaires, which can be used in extreme environments at temperatures ranging between -60 °C and +200 °C. Sammode is now seeking to apply this industrial expertise to a whole new sector, hotels, restaurants, shops, villas ... creating a new collection especially for this purpose.
Sammode presents today a collection of light fittings intended for more domestic use but given its history, this new direction could not be more natural. One need only examine the company’s roots : ever since it was founded in the late 1920 s, Sammode, a generalist, has provided electric lighting not only for production facilities, but also offices, schools, shops, and even homes. Then there is the quality and reliability of its products : by positioning itself as both a designer and manufacturer of technical lighting solutions for industry, public lighting and major transport infrastructure as far back as the 1930 s, the company has over the years accrued an incontestable expertise. Not to mention the credibility acquired in the eyes of architects. Sammode returned to architectural lighting in the 1980 s and has tirelessly updated and expanded its catalogue to meet contractor aspirations and needs. One such architect was Dominique Perrault, who would use Sammode luminaires in many of his projects ! As you can see, Sammode’s arrival into the domestic sector is anything but an accident. More like a return to our roots !
The world of Sammode Studio is as much about interiors as exteriors, and now gathers six collections. Three of these include the most high-profile tubular luminaires from the company’s architectural and industrial ranges, specially adapted for domestic applications. The other three collections have been developed out of collaborative projects with three teams of designers selected by Sammode to reinterpret its iconic luminaires : Dominique Perrault & Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost, Normal Studio and Yann Kersalé
Sammode tubular luminaires have been classics of French industrial and architectural lighting since they were first designed more than 50 years ago. Constantly improved and upgraded since then, and still manufactured in our Châtillon-sur-Saône production plant in the Vosges region of France, as they always have been, they are now available in a very diverse range of options adapted for domestic applications. Rimbaud is the perfect illustration of this history : developed out of a luminaire with an incandescent light source originally designed for lighting industrial ovens, it now features the latest technologies, including smart phone dimming. It offers a soft light output from a design that is simultaneously sophisticated, authentic and true to its origins.
