Paradisoterrestre Rue Férou Table Lamp in White Polished Bronze by Man Ray

$1,190per item

About

An ash of joy, poetry and state, this is the definition for Man Ray's work through whom the simplest directional lamp-shade in history meets the object. The perfect object was born. In the studio located in Rue Férou there were some light bulbs, scattered in the room, holding some cardboard hats, simply directing the light with the minimum. "I have always made everything with nothing," Man Ray says. Dino Gavina had the idea to use them and Man Ray personally gave the speciations for producing a lamp whose lamp-shade he made by his hand as sample. The task of developing the design was given to Giulietto Cacciari who produced the first model "Rue Férou" with a gold plated metal holder base. Man Ray is a legendary photographer, painter, and maker of objects and films. He was on the most versatile and inventive artists of this century. Born in Philadelphia in 1890, he knew the worlds of Greenwich Village in the avant-garde era following the 1913 Armory show. In Paris in the 1920s and 1930s he played a key role in the Dada and Surrealist movements. The Hollywood of the 1940s, where he joined others chased by war from their homes in Europe; and finally, Paris again until his death in 1976. Man Ray met Dino Gavina for the first time in Paris. At first, Man Ray was stressed believing that he was meeting a journalist or an art critic. But he smoothed down his hard tone and gradually turned to a kind approach when he realized that his counterpart was simply asking to make his acquaintance. Then they both walked from the corridor to his studio, where their conversation went on hours. That day marked the beginning of an extraordinary friendship and amicable relationship which lasted all their lives. Rue Férue © Man Ray Trust, by SIAE 2019.
