Poetic, lightweight and immaculately white, Icarus reminds us of the human aspiration to flight: a link between us and the celestial light. Constructed from multiple layers of extruded polyester cut to resemble a bird’s wing, Icarus casts an unforgettable silhouette.
The Icarus pendant lamp consists of several layers polyester, these are cut so that they remind us pf the swinging of a bird. If the light shines through Icarus’ middle to the outside, the feathers shine in a delighting silhouette.
The natural, the a swan’s feather reminding design of Icarus was coined by Tord Boontje. He developed the impressing design while he experimented with three-dimension objects that he cut out of paper. The overlapping paper-rests reminded Boontje in their suggested dynamic of birds’ wings. That is the reason why he designed the pendant lamp for Artecnica in the year 2005.
Icarus comes with a conical safety protector. The electrical suspension cord is not included.
