Lambert & Fils is a collaborative lighting design studio founded in 2010 by Samuel Lambert. After a career in the visual arts and film editing, Samuel Lambert chose design and craftsmanship soon after the birth of his son, as a sort of nod to his own childhood spent in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, where he often assisted his own father, a potter—a full-circle moment for Lambert, which also explains the company’s name (in French, Lambert & Fils means Lambert & Sons). After working alone for a while in his small Beaubien street shop in Montreal, Samuel Lambert succeeded over the course of a few years to mold a creative yet rigorous studio, alongside a diversified team of young talents.
