Designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartell, Bourgie lamp is one of the top bestsellers in the Kartell catalog. The rather playful object references baroque style elements on the base, and a pleated lampshade gives an interesting reflection when the light is turned on. In celebrating the 10th anniversary of the iconic lamp, Kartell invited various creatives from different industries to re-interpret the lamp. Here is a detailed look at Pharrell Williams‘ execution, featuring a human arm holding the lamp and shade. The idea behind this piece explores the notion of mankind’s journey to enlightenment, escaping the daily plight of shade. These pieces will be exhibited at the Kartell showroom on Greene Street in SoHo for a week.
