Amazing Unique Oak Branch Lamps Reminding Unusual Creatures
This lamp is one of the best examples of natural and minimalist design. The Bichos lamp series comes from Portuguese architect Martinho Pita, in Portuguese it means ‘creatures’. And these lamps really remind of creatures, they look like some crazy animals frozen in motion. The Bichos are handmade from pruned Portuguese Holly Oak trees. The light source comes from a textile-covered cord that is threaded up through each branch like a lifeline, much like a vein delivering blood. The designer says that it’s important to understand the dynamics of each branch to freeze it and shape to create the effect.
