Jake Phipps in collaboration with BOSA have designed a lamp system named Tweetie, for manufacturer CASAMANIA. Jake Phipps’s idea of the cage traces the tradition of canary in homes. Canary presence in households dates back to the Egyptian and Roman civilizations; in Middle Ages and in English courts, it was a sign of good manners to have canaries in the sitting room. Thus, an icon of British high-ranking state turns into a CASAMANIA object-lamp. A symbolic figure, enhanced by gold plating and made useful for its illuminating function.
Birds are made in BOSA hand-decorated ceramics, black painted or 24 carats gold plated, the frame is in metal rod, either black painted or gold plated in the total gold version. The LED lighting fixture is mounted in the base of the cage, covered by a double shielding in polycarbonate, that on the one hand lights up the environment, on the other the inside of the cage.
Materials and finishes
Cage: metal rod, either black painted or 24 carats gold plated.
Bird: hand-decorated ceramics, black painted or 24 carats gold plated.
Colours: gold, black.
Small: H. 46 cm – ø 41 cm

Change the lampshades and adapt the lighting to your own mood with these adorable pendant lighting from Schneid! Change your room and your living space atmosphere! This lamp is made to live and grow with you for a long time.
The socket of the Eikon, made of certified ash, oak or bamboo, constitutes the minimalist and clean base of the lamp. Attached with magnets, the metal or silicone shade forms a perfect contrast with its beautiful and vibrant colours.
The EIkon speaks a clear form language and stands in a Scandinavian design tradition. It emerged from the idea to create a synthesis of the popular industrial-style and a Scandinavian cozy, familar product tradition with the combination of the materials wood and metal or silicone.
Due to the removable, interchangeable lampshade, the lamp can be installed in all kinds of rooms and living areas. The modular und flexible system can therefore help to rearrange a room again and again, according to taste and requirements.
Also for bigger spaces, like salesrooms and hotels, the lamp offers a high degree of variability since different colors and shapes can simply be exchanged and combined.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of its iconic Bourgie table lamp, Italian plastic furniture specialist Kartell invited ten designers associated with the company to create tribute pieces for a special exhibition. For their contribution, Japanese design studio Nendo decided to work with two of the lamp’s most distinctive characteristics – its use of silhouettes and its transparency – rather than touching the original design itself.
Nendo created a new table lamp by inverting and rotating the Bourgie lamp’s silhouette, so that when two of the new lamps are lined up together, the space between them forms the upside-down silhouette of the Bourgie lamp. “Because our homage inverts both the lamp’s figure-ground relationship and our regular sense of up and down, we named the lamp Eigruob” the designers told us.

Danish designer Morten Voss has a penchant for using familiar materials in innovative and striking fashion. Aeon Rocket is the result of his vision of combining metal and polypropylene in a single design. The result is a real pleasure to the eye. This new lamp for Lightyears is the first pendant in history to take full advantage of the luminous qualities of these materials simultaneously in the same pendant.
Morten Voss has put a great deal of effort into creating harmonious proportions in this lamp. Aeon Rocket strikes a fine balance between a simple steel/aluminium upper shade and a gauzy lower shade. However, the impression of lightness is created by hours and hours of meticulous manual work. 8 light bands made of recyclable polypropylene are carefully woven together into 100 and 98 round openings respectively, allowing the light to stream through unhindered.
The metal upper shade ensures that the lamp casts plenty of light downwards. The polypropylene, in turn, has unique luminous qualities, with the material beautifully illuminated, while still diffusing the light. Suspending the lamp from on high allows you to take advantage of the matching bulb shield to prevent the light source from being visible.
Aeon Rocket is available in two sizes, Ø400 and Ø600 mm. It comes in two semi matt colours: Aeon-Black is dark grey, whereas Aeon-Grey is light grey. This striking pendant is perfectly suited to restaurants, hotels and shops, whilst also looking great suspended above the dining table in your own home.
The new lamps are currently on show at the Stockholm Furniture & Northern Light Fair.
