The DelightFULL Story
Established in 2008, DelightFULL is a Portuguese design and lighting company with a sincere passion for innovation and a true dedication to the revival of local artisan craftsmanship. And when DelightFULL uses the word “artisan,” it’s not just a marketing bullet point. The company doesn’t stock lamps, but rather hand-builds each to order in its small studio in Oporto, Portugal.
Rife with mid-century modern and art deco iconography, DelightFULL has wholly absorbed period design and music motifs from the post-war era and reverentially reconstituted those recognizable reference points into an inspired line of contemporary lighting tailored for the floor, table, ceiling and wall.
Why We Love DelightFULL
In short, they rock. Check that, they swing. Mightily. We totally love the company’s appreciation for vintage music as much as its enthusiasm for mid-century modern design, and that it so directly informs what DelightFULL is all about.
Fun Facts About DelightFULL
From a compositional standpoint, DelightFULL is keeping it real, employing materials and color schematics that are aesthetically appropriate to the ‘40’s, ‘50’s and ‘60’s. There is extensive use of brass, aluminum and copper alongside ample amounts of black, white and gold, as well as regular and welcome pops of retro color.
Noteworthy Lighting from DelightFULL
Ever since it’s December 2011 debut, the Amy Lamp has garnered considerable attention. Available in both floor and table versions, it is a tribute to the late British soul singer, Amy Winehouse. Slyly mimicking Winehouse' iconic beehive in the silhouette of the adjustable aluminum shade, DelightFULL also painted the interior of the shade in a deep Gold hue, intended to represent the singer's "golden voice."
