Kite Light: Suspended Diamond Lamps Soar Like Flying Kites

Luminous and uplifting, these kite-shaped lighting designs are made to be wall-mounted or hung from the ceiling, and intentionally recall the (albeit apocryphal) story of Benjamin Franklin flying his own electricity experiment in 1750.

Utilizing cutting-edge LED-in-GLASS technology, the smooth surface presents diffused direct and indirect illumination that is at once practical and playful and reinforces the black-framed kite shape.

The piece was designed by outofstock for Milan Design Week, and follows from the group’s ongoing focus on simple-but-unusual items that stand out and make a statement requiring little description and elementary-but-new modes of production.
