The bridge lamp was made specifically for the purpose of being able to direct light EXACTLY where it is supposed to go and not necessarily to light an entire room. Back when these lamps were created, the homes of many of the people were built to have very high ceilings which caused a great light in the room from the ceiling light, but the light was distributed throughout the whole room which created shadows below it. If you were to sit in a chair to read or sit at a desk in order to do some work, the shadow of the person or anything else near the subject, would make the light very dim and not at all bright enough to help with what task was being performed.
Louis Tiffany began creating his signature lamps in 1895, while working as a stained glass designer for an interior design company in New York. The leftover bits of multicolored glass intrigued him, and he began assembling them into beautiful designs lamps. Soon, while he was still designing for the company as well as painting, he began designing lamps that would become known as one of the most important American artistic contributions of the late 19th century. His lamps became part of Europe’s Art Nouveau movement, and heavily influenced stained glass creation.
