The Fortuny Lamp.

February 14th, 2008 · 2 Comments

This lamp, designed in 1907 by Mariano Fortuny, is considered one of the most compelling lights in the history of industrial design. The production of this lamp coincides with the Industrial Revolution, and its constructed of steel and cotton — a testament to the readily-available materials of the time. Additionally, something can be said for anyone who owns this piece: They must have a penchant for drama.

    If you are interested in purchasing a Fortuny, or simply just want information, I would just like to recommend a beautiful store in Sun Valley, Idaho. The name of the store is Bellissimo and they sell the Fortuny Lamps and offer several styles, both in their store, as well as being able to place special orders. Their service and years of experience in representing the Fortuny Lamps are incredible!
