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. Check this out, it’s called Bird On A Wire, and it’s from design firm Giopato and Coombes:
GAH! I just think this is such an awesome piece. From the Giopato and Coombes website on Bird On A Wire:
Client: Autoproduzione per la mostra Hidden Heroes
Brief: Recycle figurines retrieved from the tradition of ceramic bowls from Bassano del Grappa, Italy.
Concepts: Playing with a normally very serious archetype, the linear lamp. Freezing a moment of intersection between nature and man-made.
Path: An instantaneous idea (and solution).This object represents the initial idea, a linear lamp electrified, a resting place for the birds on top, as isusually seen on electricity distributionlines.
