Villa Planchart

Did get a load of that ceiling. Now that is detail at it's best!

These gorgeous fixtures are available (I can't imagine for very long) at the Galerie van den akker in NYC. A Rare Pair of Wall Lights by Gio Ponti for ArredoluceItalycirca 1953. These wall lights and very well documented and were used by Ponti in several of his most famous commissions including Villa Planchart in Caracas. The Villa is a work of art in itself, but the thing that got me going this morning was the impact provided by these fixtures. What a legacy this man leaves behind.
