L’Objet and Fortuny

If you saw my post on designer Dan Marty yesterday then you will be aware of the magazine tearing/sorting/stashing that is going on here OPP.  

This caught my eye in an Architectural Digest: L’Objet’s Fortuny -Inspired Collection…

Mario Fortuny, a Spaniard, adopted Venice as his home where he died in 1949.

AD quotes Proust describing Fortuny’s handprinted fabrics, “swarmed with Arabic ornaments, like the Venetian palaces hidden like sultanas behind a screen of pierced stone.”  Fortuny was accomplished in many endeavors – photography, painting, lighting design and couture but the article points out that there were a few decorative arts he had not yet explored.

Elad Yifrach, founder of L’Objet, has worked his magic to add the Fortuny influence to plates…

Yifrach studied the Fortuny archives for years searching out the motifs that he would translate in decorative objects…

Our four legged friends are not to be forgotten.  My friend Rebecca Vizard of B Viz Design is able to outfit Fido with his own Fortuny collar…
