Morning Glory Floor Lamps Celebrate 25 Years of Iconic Brilliance
Illuminating the homes of Hollywood stars and famous musicians, as well as boutique hotels across the globe, the Morning Glory Floor Lamp is truly in its glory this year, as it celebrates a quarter of a century of lasting design. Designed by Creative Director Albi Serfaty, the founder of Aqua Creations, the silk and metal sculptural lamps truly shine, whether they are on or off. Aqua Creations was established in Tel Aviv in 1994 by design team Albi, and her husband Ayala, with the goal of bringing true artistry to light.
“We’ve hand made over 4,000 Morning Glory lamps in our atelier over the last 25 years, and each is as unique today as our very first prototype.
“Originally we didn’t use any laser cutting technology, so each Morning Glory was completely individual and had its own personality. It was very primitive in a way, and the design at the time used only incandescent lamp bulbs – very simple electricity.
“Now it is more sophisticated: the base has become thinner and the opening wider to create a more sensual silhouette. We still make every Morning Glory floor lamp by hand, and our special Live and Let Dye technology means we can dye its silk shade any color or pattern. This makes it personal, fresh and relevant.
“Its size, shape, materials and the wonderful soft light it produces make it the ultimate floor lamp. We recently refurbished one of the very first lamps we ever sold, and even though it was 25 years old, it still worked perfectly. We just updated it with a new silk shade. Now it’s set for another 25 years.”
At Sklar, we are proud to offer this iconic lamp as the perfect foil for traditional or modern furniture. Manufactured in Israel under the careful supervision of their creator, Morning Glory lamps come in all shapes, sizes and a glowing range of colors, and the silk can even be hand-colored to match an exact shade. Though the sensual blossom is constructed of metal and silk, it is treated to ensure mold and fire resistance, and adds a soft ambience to any room, either on its own, or in a grouping of three or more.
The Morning Glory is perhaps Alibi’s most famous lighting creation, and at Sklar, we have access to literally hundreds of amoeba-shaped lights, such as the Liana or the Nana, that cling to the ceiling, climb the wall or just drop majestically over a dining room table. Find a place in your home for these pieces of art guaranteed to light up your life!
