THE STORY BEHIND THE MARIANO FORTUNY Y MADRAZO FORTUNY MODA FLOOR LAMP
The Moda floor Lamp was designed in 1903, and Fortuny used it as a means of bringing his appreciation of form from fashion design to the home setting. Having worked as a theatrical lighting designer, he saw the potential for a tall, dominant lighting structure for the home, which would also include a nod to the long sleek physique of the catwalk model. The result was this stunning lamp which is as eye-catching todat as it was 100 years ago.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
MARIANO FORTUNY Y MADRAZO
1871 (Spain) - 1949 (Italy)
Born into an artistic family, with both his father and grandfather distinguished painters, Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo was one of the last true renaissance men, excelling in interior design, fashion and stage innovations won him fans across the globe, it was his lighting designs that earned him a place in our hearts. Born in Granada in 1871, his widowed mother moved the family to Paris at an early age, where is his artistic talents began to flourish, before moving again to Venice at the age of 18. He would spend most of the next 20 years travelling the continent, seeking out artists he admired and absorbing their wisdom and pouring their influence into his work. These artists included German composer Richard Wagner, whose work in opera staging directly influenced the Moda Floor Lamp. Fortuny died in 1949 at his home in Venice, and his workshop and its grounds now house the Pallazzo Fortuny Museum.
