Vintage pendant lamps: the design of the past
The vintage style is now more and more popular, even in the furnishing sector. The history of pendant lamps is ancient and dates back to the Roman period. At that time, the lamps had a very simple structure, consisting only in a chain to hook it to the ceiling and the candle holders. In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, the chandeliers began to be considered for their decorating qualities. The production of chandeliers in precious materials such as blown glass designed to embellish the palaces of the rich begun. In the '30s, pendant lamps with a rounded shape were preferred, made of bronze, brass and glass; Starting in the 1950s, the interior design changed radically and the trend was to produce lamps with geometric shapes. An icon of the '50s was undoubtedly the double cone pendant lamp.
Particularly appreciated is the design of vintage 60s lamps. This is explained by the fact that in this period the design sector made great progress, with innovative ideas. The furniture and objects of the '60s have a very strong aesthetic impact, thanks to a wise use of materials and methods of decoration, such as lacquer. During these years, are also produced pendant lights with rounded and conical shapes. Some details were made of brass, copper or steel, left with the rough finish, while others were coloured. There were also chandeliers in pastel tones. In the 80s and 90s the design changed: instead of the rounded shapes, more complex sinuous and curled structures were preferred. Also with regard to the colours, no more colourful lights were produced, but with shiny and soft finishes, such as white, green or blue. Then there were the classic glass transparencies: natural or worked in such a way as to appear opaque, satin and coloured.
