The Perch Light by London-based architect and designer Umut Yamac is the perfect cross of form and function: the bird-shaped light is made to look like a folded origami creation lights up from the inside.
The light was originally designed in 2014 as a limited edition of 20, but just recently Yamac created this graceful configuration called the Perch Light Family for Moooi, which launched at Salone del Mobile in Milan. A family of six sculptural lamps celebrate the beauty and poetry of a bird perched on a branch, rocking darkness away when set in motion. Crafted from paper in the form of an abstract bird sitting on a branch, these sunlit birds are free to swing when softly touched, gently glowing and bringing along the promise of spring.
