This cordial lamp by Nicolò Barlera contains ten meters of electrical cord that is coiled to shape this lamp.
By only using a cord, plug and bulb socket the attempt to minimalise the amount of parts used worked out pretty well!.
Electricity runs through the entire length of the spiralled cord before the power reaches the bulb. The pendant shape was formed by winding the cord around a mould then doubling it back.
Barlera collaborated with designer Lorenzo Antonioni on the initial design of the Cordial lamp, then developed the project with Swedish design firm Kanter & Karlsson.
