Laudarte has gotten its public, made up of interior designers and operators from the hospitality industry, used to its precious lighting fixtures, table lamps made from exclusive and valuable materials, objects that light and adorn dozens of 5-star hotels around the world. And now, at Euroluce 2019, new developments await, starting with the company’s collaboration with Rubelli and his fabrics, which clad Laudarte’s already elegant objects.
But the real surprise is the three over-sized chandeliers designed by Feruccio Laviani: three products that are drastically different from one another in terms of their shapes and messages, but which are united by their considerable size.
The first is the neoclassical T-Rose, an enormous Empire-style chandelier with a structure in gold brass and covered in dozens of porcelain roses, a symbol of the best of Capodimonte tradition. A timeless chandelier in which styles combine, historical periods weave together, and Feruccio Laviani was able to blend everything together flawlessly.
From style to Decò, the next is Slice, a truly luminous project, a suspension lamp that, in its shapes, reintroduces the use of the scagliola technique enhanced with precious stones like amethyst, lapis lazuli, and malachite. Slice can fit in just about anywhere and be given endless lives thanks to its numerous colour options and variations in form.
The grand finale is Excelsior, a gigantic lantern that recalls the tradition of the large French entrance “lanterns” typical of the Hotel Particulier and of large historic residences. A formal simplicity and paradoxical lightness (given its size) are the striking characteristics of this object which seems to have been created to ennoble and define the lobbies and lounges of prestigious hotels, but which fits in perfectly in exclusive private residences as well.
