We recommend the exhibition “BETWEEN LIGHTS” at the Fernando Pinós gallery, a collection of beautiful table lamps, standard lamps and wall appliqués, from the end of 19th century to the middle of the 20th century.
From its New York workshops, Louis Comfort Tiffany was one of the most creative and prolific designers, with new and copied methods of glass-making. At l’École de Nancy, Majorelle and Gallé created a decorative world full of plants and insects that also covered their lights. Gaspar Homar or Joan Busquets designed some particularly beautiful models, as were also found in cabinet-makers’, reproduction or decor shops such as Casa Masriera or Esteva, Hoyos i Cia in Barcelona.
