There is something about this lamp that just leapt off the page at me when I first saw it – classic, beautiful, nice form, it’s like a moment frozen in ceramic cartoon time. Â Check this out, it’s called Bird On A Wire, and it’s from design firm Giopato and Coombes:
GAH! Â I just think this is such an awesome piece. Â From the Giopato and Coombes website on Bird On A Wire:
Client: Â Autoproduzione per la mostra Hidden HeroesÂ
Brief: Â Recycle figurines retrieved from the tradition of ceramic bowls from Bassano del Grappa, Italy.
Concepts: Â Playing with a normally very serious archetype, the linear lamp. Freezing a moment of intersection between nature and man-made.Â
Path: Â An instantaneous ideaÂ (and solution).This object representsÂ the initial idea, aÂ linear lampÂ electrified, a resting place forÂ the birdsÂ onÂ top, asÂ isusuallyÂ seenÂ onÂ electricity distributionlines.
