Venetia Studium at Decorex

Fortuny Studio 1907 white Well, first Gubi bring out a white version of Greta Grossman's Grasshopper ( see here) and now Venetia Studium have brought out a white version of Fortuny's magnificent large flood light. They will be showing it on their stand (D142) at Decorex. We detect a trend here!

Some objects can be pretty well understood from pictures, but to "get" others, one has to experience them for oneself. This Fortuny design is a case in point. So, at Decorex, check out the quality of the detailing:

But first, you'll be struck by the size. Functionally, Fortuny designed these floodlights to create a large field of shadowless light (which they do). But the pieces themselves are a statement in their own right -- a wonderful sculpture...

Fortuny created several floodlights along these lines and another version is made by Pallucco. This is not a case of one company ripping the other off: both are licensed to produce it. Venetia Studium was created to re-edit Fortuny designs, the silk versions of which are ripped off -- and badly.
