What about Fortuny lighting?

Venice is the birthplace of Fortuny lamps and it is Venice which gives them their atmosphere and colours. It is the city itself with its ever-changing reflections which inherits the legacy of the master and forges the colours of all Venetia Studium products. Sophistication, refined techniques, a high quality finish and attention to detail are the distinctive features of each original lamp bearing the Fortuny trademark.

Fortuny and Venetia Studium lighting

Venetia Studium and Fortuny are two faces of a single coin, two names coming together in an extraordinary cultural project reviving the elegance of early 20th century tastes in the design of lamps. lamps are produced exclusively by Venetia Studium, the only company in the world entitled to use the trademark for lamps.

Softness of silk lamps

The lightness of the opaline silk, the refined decoration and the balance of the silhouettes merge together, creating true sculptures of light. Perpetuating the tradition, Venetia Studium continues to produce these wonderful lamps. Evoking almost fairytale places and times, lamps are the result of research into lighting, design and ways of filtering light.
Thanks to the particular structure and various models proposed, they fit in with any style of décor, completely satisfying the needs of good illumination and giving the space a soft, evocative and timeless atmosphere. Models:
 Scheherazade, Scudo Saraceno, Samarkanda, Cesendello, Concubine.

Delicate glass lamps

In the glass range of the Fortuny lamps, Venetia Studium continues the centuries-old tradition of the Venetian master glass blowers, while retaining the elegance and originality of the shapes found in the silk version. The brilliance and transparency of the glass enhance the delicate gold decoration, made even more precious by the burnished metal of the decorative metal ring. Models:
 Scudo Saraceno, Samarkanda, Cesendello.

Mariano Fortuny

Artist, photographer, designer…It is hard to single out which aspect of the personality and work of Mariano Fortuny was predominant. His entire artistic production was based on an extraordinary synthesis of worlds and eras, of styles and techniques that only in Venice, a melting pot of civilisations, could be transformed into the creation of exquisite products. Through philological experimentation inspired by the noble roots of Western art and the magic of the Orient, Mariano Fortuny became one of the most original interpreters of Venice’s “Silver Age”.

Palazzo Fortuny

Palazzo Fortuny was transformed by Mariano Fortuny into his own atelier of photography, stage-design, textile-design and painting. The building retains the rooms and structures created by Fortuny, together with tapestries and other collections.
