“Be praised, my Lord, through your creatures [...]
Be praised, my Lord, through our sister Mother Earth, who feeds us and rules us.

When lamps are suspended from the ceiling we try to protect our eyes from the glare of the bulb. Shades, bells, pans and lids are always there in various shapes to create romantic atmospheres. Today however, there are bulbs that do all that by themselves. So I decided to concentrate my design on the wire to hang them from. I was very much helped by sophisticated laser cutting technology, and by the generous performances of zoology and botanical science.
