Designer Marcantonio continues his naturalist exploration... These troublingly realistic birds are taking over our interiors as if to remind us of the unbreakable link which exists between man and nature.
An ode to nature, Sparrow lamps offer a poetic spectacle for us to enjoy: graceful birds hold in their claws, not twigs, but cables fitted with bulbs to light up our nights and perhaps our minds!
As if suspended in the air, the cables seem flexible. In reality, they are flexible steel rods that can be twisted to make them adopt swirling, fluid shapes. The white resin birds are available in different positions: landing, take off, cruising. Evanescent and light, these sensitive, witty lights bring a touch of magic to our interiors.
These little lamps will please both kids and grown-ups! They give off a soft mood lighting.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
By creating this collection, designer Marcantonio is exploring themes like the relationship between man and nature, art and design, philosophy and the way things are. These sculptural objects, at the boundary between art and design, create a dreamlike, poetic, fantastical world.
After attending the Academy of Fine Arts, Marcantonio started creating unique pieces of design, enriching them with artistic concepts. He is quickly becoming one of the most esteemed Italian art designers of his generation. Connections between people and nature are his favourite theme, interpreting both the dynamics and beauty of them.
Founded in 1964, Italian lifestyle brand Seletti focuses on presenting design projects that showcase the creative characteristics synonymous with Italian excellence. Linking design to pop art in the most charming and irreverent manner, Seletti’s collections blend art with daily life icons.
Since its inception, Seletti has always followed its own rules. From iconic lighting and art de la table to statement objects and furniture, Seletti’s collection of irreverent pieces blends art with the everyday and are designed to make life more fun and exciting.
Seletti is now led by Stefano and Miria Seletti and has expanded into a range of collections embodying enthusiasm, passion, creativity, and experimentation.
Stefano has always believed in reinvention and works with a range of young Italian and international designers to evolve their designs. By also working with people outside of the design world, Stefano can look at the process from new angles, his unconventional and non-academic background lead him to break down barriers and journey towards a ‘new beauty. For Seletti, this is (r)evolution.
