Called Gifu Lamps, these lamps designed by Pilar Velasco and Pau Stephens have been designed to resemble a long necked animal......who are they kidding, they resemble Giraffes. They were on show as part of Salone Satellite at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. Pilar Velasco, is a British educated, Madrid based industrial designer.
The simplicity of the construction is quite elegant because it is wooden batons joined by wing nuts, which gives the joints flexibility. If I was the packing a lamp and taking it on holiday kind, I would have theses for this purpose. Our instant gratification society though is heading in the direction where not just cushions and curtains and vases will be changed every season, but I believe small electronic accessories like lamps will be changed according to season and mood and these would be most suitable for that.
Fold away lamps.
