Tiffany Lamps Gallery finds a home at YTL’s Starhill Gallery

 

Kuala Lumpur, April 15,2010

 

The name Tiffany has long been associated with luxury, beauty, colour and glamour as it was 100 years ago.

Tiffany & Co. is known as the most prestigious purveyor of jewellery, timepieces and silver objects in the world. Although many know of Tiffany’s long history in fine jewellery, only a few have been introduced to the world of Tiffany lamps.

 

About Louis Comfort Tiffany

Louis Comfort Tiffany was one of the most original, versatile and influential designers of the 19th Century and the eldest son of Harriet and Charles Lewis Tiffany-founder of Tiffany & Co. He created the Art Nouveau style lamps, which were said to be his favourite and most treasured enterprise.

 

Tiffany’s first business venture was an interior design firm in New York, for which he designed stained glass windows. He devoted himself wholeheartedly to the art of crafting glass, and pursued his desire to translate his magnificent colour sense into environments designed for everyday living.

 

One of his first recognized works was a commission by US President Chester A. Arthur to redecorate parts of the White House in Washington. Tiffany produced a very large three-part-glass screen to separate the White House public and private areas and several mirrored wall sconces.

 

Tiffany and associates decorated the home of many of the wealthiest and most prominent families in America including those of Andrew Carnegie, Henry Osborne Havemeyer, John Taylor Johnston, Cornelius Vanderbilt ll and famed author Mark Twain.

 

Tiffany was very much inspired by the coloured glass he saw on many of his trips to Europe and North Africa. While producing stained glass windows of magnificent beauty and complexity, Tiffany realized that with the high light output of the new electric lamps, he could also use his stained glass in lampshades to fine effect.

 

About Tiffany Lamps

His respect for the innate properties of glass led him to his greatest innovation-the development of a type of glass he called Favrile, which means made by hand.

Favrile glass is produced by exposing molten glass to a series of fumes and metallic oxides. Standard metallic oxides such as chromium, silver, gold, cobalt and even uranium are used in various combinations to achieve the desired translucency. This combination infuses the material with a variety of glowing colours.

 

And thus the Tiffany lampshade was born. The beautiful glass lampshades soon become key icons of the Art Nouveau movement worldwide. Production of his more popular lampshades was a by-product using the many thousands of pieces of glass that remained after cutting individual elements for the windows. The designers work with over five thousand different colours and textures of glass to emulate the radiance of nature in their creations.

 

It is the floral lamps, with their characteristic ornate bronze bases, some of which incorporate glass mosaics that are most highly sought after by collectors today.

 

The wide variety of flowers Tiffany used as subjects for his shades includes geraniums, magnolias, poppies, poinsettias, water lilies, daffodils, tulips, peonies, begonias, hydrangeas, roses, apple, wisteria and cherry blossoms.

 

The lamps allowed more people to appreciate the striking beauty of Favrile glass and to enjoy it in their very homes. Tiffany lamps are a piece of Art Nouveau that has lasted for decades. Timeless in its design, the Lotus lamp is one of the most magnificent and most expensive model created by Tiffany Studios and was priced at $750 in 1906. It was auctioned in December 1997 at Christie’s auction house in New York for $2,807,500 – a record price for a Tiffany Lamp.

 

Other lamps of similar complexity and cost were the Cobweb and the Butterfly, each listed at $500, while the Wisteria and Pond Lily models were priced at $400 at the time of production.

 

Tiffany’s unparalleled genius in this medium has been undertaken now because there is a need to capture these masterpieces for posterity. Several of the lamps from the Tiffany Studios collection have disappeared in to private collections in three continents.

 

Of the magnificent lamps that are around the world today some are exclusive Tiffany designs, some are representations of the Tiffany style while others are creative originals made by talented artists from around the world.

 

The strange old-fashioned lamps created by Tiffany studios places value in beauty and as we enjoy these masterpieces it enables us to fully appreciate the art of glassmaking.

 

Lighting up Malaysia

Malaysia was one of the first markets that brought in reproductions of the original Tiffany Lamps for sale in South East Asia.

 

The sole dealer for Tiffany Lamps in Malaysia is William Tseng whose first run-in with Tiffany Lamps started when he was acquiring and dealing in antiquities.

 

“I have always been interested in antiques and I love sculptures but found it very hard to acquire antique pieces. When I came across the Tiffany lamps, I realized that it instilled in me emotions. The lamps made me feel happy, while bringing beauty into my home,” explained William.

 

“This isn’t just a lamp but a work of art. The collection of floor lamps, wall lamps, table lamps are exclusive and there are no two pieces alike. Only design reproductions from Tiffany Studios are found here,” said William who recently moved his Tiffany Lamps Gallery into a magnificent space at Starhill Gallery in Kuala Lumpur.

 

The all-black concept store was designed to unveil the mystery of the lamps. The walls ate lined with black mirrors and act as a canvas that captures the reflection of the lamps around the store.

 

“A Tiffany lamp makes an unforgettable gift! It’s something that is never thrown away. It’s a gift to last a lifetime,” said William as we toured the store.

 

One might not be able to see or acquire the original Tiffany lamps to enjoy at home but a visit to Tiffany Lamps Gallery will most certainly help you acquire a perfect alternative of a lamp from the Tiffany collection.

 

Tiffany Lamps Gallery is located on the Explore Floor at KL’s iconic Starhill Gallery.

تعدد شرکت های لوله بازکنی و انتخاب از میان آن ها همیشه کسانی را که به دنبال رفع مشکل خود در این زمینه هستند را دچار سردرگمی می کند، چرا که متقاضیان نمی دانند کدام شرکت قابل اعتماد و اطمینان است و می تواند مشکل به وجود آمده را به نحو احسن حل کند. به عنوان مثال لوله بازکنی سراسر تهران یکی از خدماتی است که صدها شرکت آن را در این منطقه ارائه می دهند و اگر قصد استفاده از این خدمات را داشته باشید، قطعا در انتخاب شرکت مناسب  سر در گم خواهید شد.
