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.
