I always love the beauty of a great light. I have some fantastic examples at home, mainly Italian (including the Tizio lamp created by Richard Sapper for Artemide in 1972 and a Pipistrello Lamp by Gae Aleunti, 1966) so I couldn’t resist publishing these photographs of Art Nouveau lamps. They are just magnificent!

This exhibition features 20 exquisite lamps manufactured in the early twentieth century by Tiffany Studios, Handel, Durand, and Duffner & Kimberly. The exhibition focuses on themes related to the Art Nouveau style and its inspiration in nature. Discussion will also unfold related to various companies who competed for customers to sell lamps at the turn of the century and the competition between them. The exhibition will also explore the intricate copper foil production process used for the creation of glass lamps. All of the objects in Out of the Forest are from the private collection of Byron Vreeland.
