Porca Miseria

Waddesdon Manor, Aylesbury Bucks

One of the most striking features at Waddesdon Manor is a light called 'Porca Miseria' which hangs in the dinning room. Translated from Italian, "Porca Miseri", means “Oh my Goodness” which is quite fitting for the exploding dinner service (white porcelain dishes, cutlery etc) that emanates light. It was created as commission in 2004 by lighting designer Ingo Maurer. The light sits in stark yet perfect contrast to the reigning 19th century style decor.
