The taildragger arrangement was common during the early propeller era, as it allows more room for propeller clearance.

Aluminum, Glass, E14 Led

Edition of 10
[sold out]

IO is a table lamp made of anodized aluminum and borosilicate glass. Inspired by F. L. Wright’s Johnson Wax, the shade of the lamp is composed of two staggered rows of handcrafted glass pipes, softly diffusing the light towards the viewers eyes, while concentrating the lighting downwards. The structure of the lamp itself is a tripod made of four black aluminum elements, organised in a similar configuration as found in aircrafts landing gears. To ensure proper stability and avoid any risks of accidental fall, the structure integrates a safety hook, holding the electric cable close to the lamps support. The light is provided by a low energy Led bulb mounted on a universal E14 socket.
