The latest restyling of the Fortuny lamp is the result of an important creative partnership with Rubelli where fabric now shares the spotlight with light.
The lampshade is the work of fabric designer Dominique Kieffer and clearly shows how up-to-date Fortuny’s work is – an amazing feat – and how it can successfully be reinvented with such understated yet stunning elegance.
The internal lining of the diffuser is in linen, the natural material which is such a favourite with the French designer, and is interwoven with precious gold threads.
The pleated taffetà used on the outside creates the impression of small waves of light and shadow.
This effect is a nod at the silk pleating technique which was invented by Mariano Fortuny in 1909, one hundred years ago. Floor light. Structure in a C-shaped section, flat steel and tubular steel. Black epoxy powder lacquered finish. Fitted with a 500 W incandescent bulb with E40 socket , 230/110 V
