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.
From the designer:
‘The ‘Tweety’ table lamp has a simple and intuitive design, made up of two main parts needed to build a lamp: the light and the body. These two elements are combined without using screws or joints but by simply letting the bulb hang from its body, like a bird hanging on its birdcage, making it easy to clean, assemble and package.’
