Concept

The extraordinary thing about the Flamingo cannot be appreciated in photographs, nor even in detailed design plans. What distinguishes it from any other lamp is its use. Its unusual height, the quality of its light, the neutrality and apparent fragility of its variable and detachable structure, the mobility of its very delicate wings, all allow for unsuspected uses. It can be a substitute for a candle at dinner, light up a picture or bookrest, allow reading in bed without disturbing the possible bedfellow.
