Art Nouveau Lamp at Casa Mila or La Pedrera

Art Nouveau Lamp at Casa Milà or La Pedrera [enlarge]

This impressive art nouveau lamp that reminds me of some ancient diver's helmet or the head of a dragonfly with a little more imagination, hangs from the ceiling in the hall of La Pedrera or Casa Mila, built by Gaudi between 1906 and 1910. Brothers Badia were the iron forgers so I assume they had to do with this lamp but so far I haven't been able to find out who designed such beauty. You can find a thumbnail of La Pedrera on my Google Map below.

  1. Neat looking lamp, it reminds me of a head of a fly or some other creature!
