2. The Photographer's Lamp: Surveying not for you? Maybe your fantasy had more to do with being a fashion photographer in a fabulous loft, and directing people to use their best Le Tigre, Blue Steel- or lemur poses. This is the ultimate photographer's style lamp, designed by Mariano Fortuny in 1907. Fortuny was also a stage set designer, so he knew how to bring the drama.
The Fortuny photographer's lamp is about as dramatic as it gets. It works well in this open room, and has a nice relationship to the urban view, particularly to the glowing skyscraper. It is also part of a nice ensemble that includes a Barcelona Daybed and an Eileen Gray Side Table.
