The Modern

The lamp, by contrast, is associated with another type of literature, the Romantic. The lamp emits a light that is covered by shadows-by-dark areas and never fully illuminates the ambiguity is one of the consequences. Second, the ideal room Poe is designed to lead us into another reality in which fantasy and the fantastic-and how Gothic, to be exact-is possible. It seems that what bothers Poe, rather than glass, is the proliferation of nonfiction finally reign on the effect of the lamp (even to our days where like most literature ranging from realistic and quite traditional – whose boundaries are already well-known-to the other end, with the return of the wonderful literary sagas) and, following their game, this can also be translated into interior decoration. The glass has become the material of choice in design (from one, or a dining table to a desktop PC, a library or even a CD holder, and also in architecture, including the train station in Germany) . What does this tell us about ourselves? Why should our inclination towards the glass? Why the glass has become a must-have for any living wishing to express a modern and denote a certain status? Transparency and clarity, to reflect light rather than retain it.

The Modern man uses much of their time indoors, "home to work and from work to home." The chaos of the city and the fragmentation of being demanding some kind of unity that he sought, of course, in your own home. The man who lives in the big city, where space is rationed, you need to create the illusion of space and light. The mirrors are not only useful for reflecting an image but also to multiply the light. They can illuminate and double the spaces, making them look wider and more enlightened. Clusters of buildings, cars, people, objects, advertisements, images that bombard our senses, how can we find the simplicity, the "lost unity"? At home, our modern and private Eden, we say. The glass is now for us, a need, creates an illusion and gives the modern man the light and space, but also a certain sense of freedom, that yearn.
