Perch Light, A Beautiful Origami Bird Lamp

Array

Array
Home  |  Lighting


The Perch Light is a balancing sculptural light made of folded paper and brass, created by London-based designer Umut Yamac.
The lamp takes the form of an abstract bird which appears to be delicately balanced on its metal perch. The bird is illuminated through contact with the perch and this lets the bird balance and swing without any cables whilst maintaining luminance. The design was inspired by nature and in particular, the elegance and beauty of a bird sitting on its perch.
The bird has been precisely counterbalanced to sit in a resting position on its perch unless activated into gentle motion by wind or touch.
The bird can rest on either a floor-standing or wall-mounted perch.
