The Past, because DelightFULL’s pieces were inspired by great jazz musicians, singers and composers from the 50’s. The Present, because our pieces are handmade by national producers that use peculiar and unique techniques. And, of course, the Future, because we are witnessing innovative designs. The mid-century lighting brand ’s designers deconstruct certain concepts and create innovative pieces that are going to be presented at Light and Building 2018, in Frankfurt, from 18th to 23rd of March.
Today, we give you the opportunity to travel with Sinatra Lamp. This mid-century design was inspired by Frank Sinatra’s song “New York, New York”. Come aboard and see which were the most important events when this iconic singer was born!
The birth’s year of this great and beloved singer, was market by tragedy.
1915 witnessed a number of major battles in World War One. This year was also the year when poison gas was used for the first time.
Fortunately, this year was also the year of the birth of one of the best-selling music artists of all time! So, let’s remember the highlights of his career!
Sinatra began singing professionally as a teenager, but he learned music by ear and never learned to read music He got his first break when his mother persuaded a local singing group, the 3 Flashes, to let him join.
In 1938, Sinatra found employment as a singing waiter at a roadhouse called “The Rustic Cabin”, in New Jersey. Thanks to his vocal training, Sinatra could now sing two tones higher, and developed a repertoire which included songs such as “My Buddy”, “Willow Weep for Me” and “It’s Funny to Everyone But Me”.
Tommy Dorsey was a major influence on Sinatra and became a father figure. Sinatra copied Dorsey’s mannerisms and traits, becoming a demanding perfectionist like him, even adopting his hobby of toy trains.
DelightFULL was also inspired by Tommy Dorsey and the designers decided to create Dorsey Lamp, a huge success!
In his first year with Dorsey, Sinatra recorded over forty songs! But after the 1942 recordings, Sinatra believed he needed to go solo, with an insatiable desire to compete with Bing Crosby.
1942 – 1945
Sinatra did not serve in the military during World War II because of a perforated eardrum.
However, he entertained the troops during several successful overseas USO tours. Sinatra worked frequently with the popular Andrews Sisters in radio the 1940s, and many USO shows were broadcasted to the troops.
1946 – 1952
In 1946, Frank Sinatra launched his first album, “ The Voice of Frank Sinatra”. Sinatra sang on 160 radio shows, recorded 36 times, and shot four films. By this time, he was performing on stage up to 45 times a week, singing up to 100 songs daily.
1982 – 1998
Sinatra was awarded the second “Ella Award” by the Los Angeles-based Society of Singers, and performed for a final time with Ella Fitzgerald at the award ceremony.
DelightFULL was also inspired by the great Ella Fitzgerald, so designers created Ella Lamp. Stunning like her, right?
In 1995, to mark Sinatra’s 80th birthday, the Empire State Building glowed blue. At the end of the tribute, Sinatra: 80 Years My Way, Sinatra graced the stage for the last time to sing the final notes of the “Theme from New York, New York”.
The first member of DelightFULL’s Sinatra Family was born. Based in all the historical and personal events, it is easy to understand why DelightFULL did this tribute. With its mid-century modern touch, it is one of the most peculiar and colorful pieces!
