Kalmar Chandelier Palazzo Gilt Brass and Glass Austria, 1970s

About

'Palazzo' 24-carat plated brass and clear glass chandelier by Kalmar Austria. The chandelier is marked with the Kalmar label. The chandelier has 12 socked for small bulbs (E14) with max. 40 Watts per bulb and one socket for a large bulb (E27). The chandelier can also be used with LED bulbs. Measurements: Diameter 19.70 inches, height 14.16 inches without the chain. The total height is 31.5 inches with the chain. (Can be shortened). Very good condition. The Kalmar “Werkstätten” (workshops) are as well part of Austrian culture as of modern design. Julius August Kalmar founded the Viennese company in 1881 as a cast bronze factory and lighting company. His son Julius Theodor realigned it to the pioneering “Werkbund movement” in Austria. For almost 140 years now, Kalmar has been known for its modernist experiments and meticulous craftsmanship. From 1925 Kalmar products were offered in the noble furniture store "Haus und Garten", which belonged to the architects of the Werkbund, Josef Frank and Oskar Wlach. From 1931 onwards, only designs by Werkbund artists were produced, including Oswald Haerdtl, Oskar Strnad and Clemens Holzmeister. Kalmar established the Burgtheater, the Vienna Opera and the Vienna Stock Exchange. Kalmar remained connected to the ideas of the Werkbund with its special lighting objects: an interdisciplinary design approach that combined craftsmanship and art with architecture. Julius Theodor had first studied architecture. His teacher there, Josef Hoffman, was not only a designer but also co-founder of the "Österreichischer Werkbund" (“Austrian Werkbund”), which had a significant influence on Kalmar's later work. He also acquired his skills at the Birmingham School of Art and the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. J.T. Kalmar was also a trained master blacksmith in the tradition of the family business. Through the complete reorientation of the company in the first half of the century by Julius Theodor, it has continued to this day in the 4th generation. The great designs were used to furnish the presidential palace in the Kremlin, in the RMS Queen Mary 2, in the hotels of the sophisticated Ritz-Carlton Group, the Grand Hyatt, the Waldorf Astoria, the Shangri-La and Mandarin Oriental. They can also be found in the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
