‘Roots’ Vases by Giorgio Bonaguro; photo by Andrea Basile Studio
The colourful roots of Giorgio Bonaguro’s glass vases can hold a single flower, but when placed upside-down the larger outer cylinder can hold a bunch. Bonaguro combines simple lines with an iconic shape: an outer clear glass cylinder is joined with an internal element in coloured glass which represents the roots of a flower. Made of blown borosilicate glass.

Scooby doo is a modern lamp with simplified and reduced components to assemble it. It refers to the classicism in design, especially through the use of materials like copper for the base and a blown glass shade.

The Milan-based industrial designer Giorgio Bonaguro has realised this simple table lamp which, as he explains, resembles ‘a bird hanging on its birdcage.’ Aptly named ‘Tweety’, the light is composed of two parts: an energy-efficient class ‘A’ lightbulb connected to a coloured wire, and a white, polymethylmethacrylate body from which the source of light is suspended. Available in three colourways, the design has recently been awarded ‘best design’ award in the ‘Lighting – Professionals’ category at the Salao Design 2011 contest which took place during Casa Brasil fair.
