Bow Lamp uses less material, more designer skill

Seemingly Valerio Cometti is a green guy. Hopefully. He designed a lamp with no real body, with its shape dictated by tensions in the elastic aluminium frame and the electric chord ran through the support running against the wall. Difficult to understand? . If so take a look at the images after the jump and get inspired.

I am really impressed by the same aesthetics while using smart framing with less material, which could be anything from aluminium to stainless steel to some elastic timber. Other similar lamps use some sort of heavy ballast to balance the weight of the curbed steel pipe and head diffuser.

Other interesting point would be that this design gets the whole object closer to the wall, saving space.
