Magnificent bronze work inspired by marine life. Eight open arms that extend to a mermaid’s tail. Each one supports a bouquet of three LED candles. “Despite the imposing size of this chandelier, the slender, elegant barrel and the refinement of its style is evident. I was attracted by the finesse of the execution which testifies to the work of a great bronze artisanal sculptor of his time. Régis Mathieu Paulo Buffa (1903-1970), Italian architect and designer best known for his designs of mid-century furniture. Characterized by a melding of tradition and modernity, he used a combination of low-profile, rectilinear, and hardwood forms to produce his most classic pieces. Buffa studied in Milan, his native City, before working for the prominent Italian architect and designer Gio Ponti. The designer’s oeuvre includes exhibitions at the 1948 Salon des Artistes Decorateur in Paris. Before his death in 1970 in Milan, Italy, Buffa had been named one of the most important designers in the country.

The 1920-1940 Art Deco style is the first style that is movement of a truly global and simultaneous nature. It is also the first one to fully combine architecture and decoration. It takes its name from the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts which was held in Paris in 1925. Inspired by Cubism, Fauvism and African and Egyptian art, Art Deco can be defined in three words: order, color and geometry. Art Deco furniture and lightings benefit from a prestigious production for wealthy clients, from the Chrysler Building to the Palace of the Maharajah of Indore, the Stoclet Palace, the Champs Elysées theater or the large transatlantic liners of the time. The greatest artists in terms of Lighting are Jacques-Emile Ruhlman, Jules Leleu, Jean-Michel Frank, Jean-Charles Moreux, and many others.
Magnifique travail en bronze qui s’inspire d'un registre marin inattendu. Huit bras ouverts qui se terminent en queues de sirènes supportant chacun un bouquet de trois bougies LED. « Malgré la taille imposante de ce lustre, on remarque le fût élancé, élégant et le raffinement de son style épuré. J'ai été attiré par la finesse d'exécution qui témoigne du travail d'un grand bronzer à l'époque ». Régis Mathieu Paulo Buffa (1903-1970), architecte et designer italien. Caractérisé par un mélange de tradition et de modernité, a utilisé une combinaison de formes discrètes, rectilignes et de bois pour produire ses pièces les plus emblématiques. Buffa a étudié à Milan, sa ville natale, avant de travailler pour le célèbre architecte et designer italien Gio Ponti. L'œuvre de Buffa a été exposée au Salon des Artistes Décorateurs de 1948 à Paris. Avant sa mort en 1970, Buffa avait été nommé l'un des designers les plus importants du pays.

Le style Art Déco 1920-1940 est le premier mouvement qui allie pleinement l’architecture et la décoration à être de nature vraiment mondiale et simultanée. Il tient son nom de l'Exposition internationale des Arts décoratifs et industriels modernes qui se tint à Paris en 1925. Inspiré par le cubisme, le fauvisme et l’art africain et égyptien, l’Art Déco peut se définir en trois mots: ordre, couleur et géométrie. Le mobilier et les luminaires Art Déco bénéficient d'une production de prestige pour des clients aisés, du Chrysler Building au Palais du Maharajah d’Indore, en passant par le palais Stoclet ou le théâtre des Champs Elysées ou les grands paquebots transatlantiques de l’époque. Les plus grands artistes en terme de Luminaires sont Jacques-Emile Ruhlman, Jules Leleu, Jean-Michel Frank, Jean-Charles Moreux, et bien d’autres.
