This lamp has been individually hand crafted in a selection of glimmering gold, shimmering silver and clear glass pieces. An intricate metallic cap completes this sparkling treasure.
The origin of the Fragrance Lamp goes back to 1898 when a French pharmacist created the Catalytic Combustion system to disinfect the air in the hospitals. The original models were made of crystal or glass and operated with the same method of purification that is used today: Diffusion by Catalyic Combustion.
The catalytic burner captures and destroys the molecules that carry odours. The mixing of air and the movement from convection ensures that odours are destroyed as well as airbourne microorganisms. Catalytic Fragrance Lamps actually purify the air before perfuming it.
In the 1920's designers were commissioned to create aesthetic bottles to be offered to private consumers. The lamps, which had previously cleansed and purified the air exclusively in an industrial setting, now came into the private home.
While air fresheners and room sprays usually mask odours, Catalytic Lamps actively purify, cleanse and perfume the air in a wide area. Common odours in the home produced by cooking, pets, tobacco and exercising can be safely and effectively removed by using Ashleigh & Burwood Catalytic Lamps.
