“Through experimentation with cutting paper to create a three dimensional form for a light, we discovered a structure with overlapping feather shapes that resembled a swan’s wing. We made the form a-symmetrical to emphasise this and to make it very dynamic. As the light appears as a wing circling a light, the name Icarus seemed an appropriate reference.” Tord Boontje

Lovely, no? Icarus Lamp.
