Bertrand Balas, a French architect born in 1935, created the lamp Here Comes the Sun in August 1969. It was released in 1970 and this ceiling lamp is still collected by many French lighting addicts.
At first sight, this round lamp looks like many other round lamps. But the Here Comes the Sun by Bertand Balas becomes magic when the light is on. Depending on your mood, you feel the sun rising, the sunlight or the moonlight.
With Bertrand Balas’s ceiling lamp the night becomes an expected time. Then the sweet night begins… We could have called it the sweet light. But the story of the name of this lamp is also so interesting. When it was released in 1970, Bertrand Balas wanted to call it Here Comes the Sun because of the Beatles song, but he declined, he thought that the Beatles would not let him do it.
Walking in the Eric Clapton’s garden in April 1969, George Harrison wrote Here comes the sun after the long cold winter, when the ice melts, you feel the treasure of sunlight… The song and the Balas’s ceiling lamp should have come together. Come together…
