DANISH MODERN WALL MOUNTED SCO NCE / CHANDELIER! M I D C E N T U R Y I T A L I A N S T Y L E!
IN THE MANNER OF FONTANA ARTE & MAX INGRAND. YELLOW , RED & BLUE HUES!In the post war era, Europe took the lead in modern lighting. This was due to the fact that after much destruction, there was a need to rebuild Europe and demand for furnishings and lighting! This spirit of renewal and change was embraced in Europe and in Italy one could see the designers breaking with the old ways and creating new forms and shapes that defined a new era! This biomorphic sconce/chandelier is a tour de force of European modernism! The light and bright hues are complemented by a visual airiness - the sense of looking at a cloud hovering in the sky! This lamp is reminiscent of designs by Max Ingrand and Fontana Arte who worked with amoeba-like shapes in chandeliers, and along with other manufacturers, brought to life the biomorphic school of lighting design. This design ethos was short-lived, started around 1946 and peaked around 1952. This has made the biomorphic furnishings crafted during this era particularly scarce and extremely coveted! This sconce/chandelier has an ethereal beauty that transcends all time periods. It looks simply sublime lit or unlit! Designed to work with a wall switch and be mounted on a flat surface.
