Design by Fortuny, Kieffer and Rubelli.
Made in Italy by Pallucco.
This latest restyling of the Fortuny Floor Lamp is the result of a creative collaboration with Rubelli, where fabric shares the spotlight with the light itself. The lampshade is the work of fabric designer Dominique Kieffer and clearly shows the timelessness of Fortuny's work and how it can successfully be reinvented with understated but stunning elegance.
The internal lining of the Fortuny Rubelli Floor Lamp is in linen - a favorite material of the French designer - and is interwoven with gold threads. The pleated taffeta used on the outside creates the impression of small waves of light and shadow. This effect is a nod at the silk pleating technique that was invented by Mariano Fortuny in 1909.
Fortuny Rubelli features a flat and tubular steel body in black epoxy powder lacquered finish.

In 1971, Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo was born in Granada, Spain. His early childhood was divided between Rome, where his father had a studio and Capricio near Naples. After his father's death in 1874, his family left for Paris to join their uncle. His father and grandfather were both celebrated artists. Mariano inherited artistic skills and also worked in printing, drawing and chemistry.
Mariano studied painting until the age of 18, and was then introduced to Parisian society. After a while, his mother moved the family to Venice. He bought a palazzo and turned it into an enormous studio. Mariano produced both easel paintings, frescoes, sculptures and prints. In 1897, he was awarded the gold medal at the Munich International Festival of Art for his painting The Flower Girls. He exhibited his paintings every year at the Venice Biennale until his death.See other lights/products from Mariano Fortuny Y Madrazo
