Art Nouveau, Modern Styles, Modernismo, Style Liberty, Jugendstil; all these names refer to the same revolutional visual art movement known as szecesszió in Hungary. One of the most prominent centres of the new direction was Vienna, where in 1897 49 artists withdrew from academic art movements to found their own exhibition place called Secession. The ornate style conquered Europe rapidly. If you have visited Barcelona, you must have seen and felt the essence of Art Nouveau. Gaudis wonderfully ornate, fascinating buildings are masterpieces which impress all of us. However, Viennese Art Nouveau is almost purist when compared to the lush design found in Catalonia. Its buildings are defined by soft lines and curves and little floral décor, almost bearing similarities with Bauhaus. The finest examples of Art Nouveau in Budapest include the Museum of Applied Arts, Institute of Geology and Postal Savings Bank (now National Treasury). Other noteworthy buildings countrywide are Cifrapalota in Kecskemét, Reökpalota in Szeged and the Town Hall in Szabadka. For obvious historical reasons (Hungary being part of Austro-Hungarian monarchy) architects drew inspiration from Viennese Secession. Nowdays playful elements in architecture and interior design are rare. Functionality reigns over imagination, minimalism is the new king. Fortunately there are more and more home owners who feel the need to decorate their white, practical living spaces. The best and most special way to give a room a special feel is a remarkable lamp. A Gaudi inspired lamp or a Viennese chandelier in nickel finish can easily be the it-piece of a modern room. Many home owners tend to forget the importance of lighting when they are about to choose materials and interior items: however even the most beautiful parquette or elaborate drapery will lose its charm if lit by mass products made of plastic. The choice of timeless Art Nouveau lamps is evidence of finest taste. They complement the edgy modern design furniture in unique fashion. Finding the right lamps is not easy though, since only a few companies manufacture genuine Art Nouveau style lamps, and originals are hard to find or highly expensive. Hungary prides itself with the company where you can find the biggest and finest selection of Art Nouveau lamps. Patinás Lámpa Ltd has been manufacturing lamps for more than 30 years, the way artisans did a century ago.
