At the end of the 18th century, the growing need for light pushed scientists to look at new light sources to improve the techniques of oil and tallow lamps. The Parisian Leyer invents the flat wick while Argand develops the double draft lamp, with a glass chimney and a fabric wick in the shape of a hollow cylinder: this system suppresses smoke by converting matter into light. It crowds out the candle because it has the advantage of being cheaper and giving a brighter light.


A la fin du XVIIIe siècle, le besoin grandissant de lumière pousse les savants à se pencher sur de nouvelles sources lumineuses pour améliorer les techniques des lampes à huile et à suif. Le parisien Leyer invente la mèche plate tandis qu’Argand développe la lampe à double courant d’air, à cheminée de verre et à mèche de tissu en forme de cylindre creux : ce système supprime la fumée en convertissant la matière en lumière. Elle évince la chandelle car elle a l’avantage d’être meilleur marché et de donner une lumière plus claire.
