I bought one of these for a friend of mine who was turning a big birthday number last night. An architect, I knew that he'd appreciate the beauty of this iconic little lamp and that it would look beautiful in his modern house. I see it in front hall or bedroom or nursery or office.
A favorite design of mine by the Bouroullecs, I first saw this lamp in Milan last year. Highly polished and available in four colors, this thing sips energy - it's lit by thirty-six 120 Volt LEDs (4 Watts total). You can find it for $255 at FLOS via Amazon here.
