Tord Boontje Icarus Light Shade [wing Shape Ceiling Lamp) For Sale
Tord Boontje Icarus Lamp Shade
The Icarus lamp shade by Tord Boontje
is a light design with a story behind it. Remember the story of
Daedalus and Icarus, who made wings of feathers and wax to escape from
the evil King Minos of Crete? Things turned out OK for Daedalus, but
less so for Icarus who flew too close to the sun, lost his wings and
fell to his doom.
One of the favourite lighting designs from Tord Boontje, the stunning
Icarus is a tumbling swathe of feathers - light, ethereal and dynamic.
Its size and arresting design mean it will be the centerpiece of any
interior it's put in: the pieces form simply demands attention. The idea
for the Icarus light shade 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.
Tord Boontje 's Icarus lamp shade has a complete drop of 78cm and is rated for bulbs up to 60
