Fellow Minerva alumnus Marc van der Voorn designed this wonderful lamp.
He designed it a few years back to be fair, but it only came to my attention recently. It was commissioned by Dutch label Odesi. The bird looks as if it will fly away any minute. I love how the chintz and delicate fabric of the lamp contrasts with the harsher appearance of the bird.
Funny how birds tend to play part in many Dutch designs.
The Starling comes in four colours; cream, charcoal, olive and mahogany and costs €240 through the Odesi webshop.
