Why doubles? Because they are very useful: put it behind a sofa so you can read a book with the two of you without sharing the light of only one lamp.... And you only need one power point for two lamps. The arms are foldable, folded they have a lenght of 360 mm and unfolded they have a lenght of 720 mm.
In 1921, Bernard-Albin Gras designed a series of lamps for use in offices and industrial environments. The Gras lamp is astounding in its simple yet beautiful design, which has neither screws nor welded joints in the basic form. Very quickly Le Corbusier was seduced by the modern aspect and the quality of this lamp. It did not take long for Le Corbusier to use the lamps in his own offices, as well as in many of his most architectural projects all over the world. Ever since the Gras lamp has been a legend.
