Day 42 - Flights of Fantasy

icarusThe Icarus is an absolutely stunning light, the latest creation from designer sensation Tord Boontje.

Gigantic, lightweight and delicate at the same time, it is made from various layers of polyester. It comes with a cone-shaped plastic safety protector, which prevents the material from coming into contact with the light bulb.

Flat-packed for quick and easy assembly. Maximum lamp rating 60 watt. Drop approx 78cm.

The idea for the Icarus started as an experiment with cutting paper to create a dimensional form for light, discovering a structure with overlapping feather shapes that resembled a swan’s wing. The end result is very romantic, delicate and absolutely dreamy.

£58.50 from Dutch By Design
