The Cervantes light from is a noble design, one whose form is both splendid and sublime. This truly contemporary lamp is crafted with modern-day skill and technological innovation. At the same time, Cervantes makes reference to a centuries-old Spanish novelist and dramatist, Señor Miguel de Cervantes. Cervantes is the creation of award-winning German designer and incorporates a design that emulates the bending and looping effect of ruffs. A garment worn around the neck in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, ruffs were ﬁxed in elaborate ﬁgure-of-eight folds and often depicted on paintings of notable and exalted people. It is a portrait of Miguel de Cervantes sporting a ruff that inspired Dammer’s Cervantes light design.
