Cooper Hewitt Museum to Officially Reveal Recently Acquired Tiffany Lamp from Macklowe Gallery
On Tuesday March 6th, the Cooper Hewitt Museum opens its doors for a Curators’ tour of the famous Carnegie Mansion, a private viewing of the newly restored Teak Room, and the official reveal of the hanging Tiffany Lamp.
Over the course of the last few years, Macklowe Gallery has worked intimately with Cooper Hewitt in supporting them in the procurement of this chandelier – from the lending of it to their exhibit, Passion for the Exotic: Louis Comfort Tiffany and Lockwood de Forest, to assisting them in securing funding to purchase the item permanently, the Gallery is honored to be a part of such a historic moment in the Museum’s history. This lamp will replace the lighting that was once used to illuminate the Teak Room, yet mysteriously disappeared sometime in the last century.
Sarah Coffin, Head of Product Design and Decorative Arts, and Emily Orr, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary American Design, will escort guests throughout the mansion whilst exploring the role of Tiffany glass and lighting in Aesthetic Movement interiors, discussing the relationship between Carnegie, Tiffany, and Lockwood de Forest – designer of the Teak Room – and the history of the mansion.
