It symbolizes a beginning, a future, a promise. A lightweight blow-molded body, a free form inflated with a softness and delicacy, the lamp BIRTH CERTIFICATE proudly bears its name. An embryo of light, a rippling totem with singularly organic physical and formal properties. An incandescent torch, reminiscent of the Alien, from whose hollow interior a vibrant and metaphysical light springs forth, as in life. YS
