Perhaps it's obvious that I would like this iconic lamp.
A) It looks like a photography lamp and deflector but much, much cooler.
B) It was designed by Mariano Fortuny, who was born in the ancient Spanish city of Granada, which is located about an hour's drive from my family's apartment in the Mediterranean coastal town of Solebrana and is therefore I place I have visited several times throughout my life.
Although Fortuny was trained as a painter, he became known as a fashion designer, stage-set designer, and lighting technician. His 1907 lamp design represents the early modernist emphasis on industrial materials, functional style and the spatial role of objects. It also makes a compelling modern sculpture. The light is height adjustable and the diffuser swivels to allow for direct lighting or a nice, soft glow. It's a clear embodiment of Fortuny's philosophy: "It is not the quantity, but the quality of light, that makes things visible."
