Making a statement without saying a word!

Icarus light by Tord Boontje
I love rooms that make a BIG bold statement. They can be painted orange, lit by a thousand flickering candles, or filled with amazing art. The Icarus light by Tord Boontje is a statement piece that would definitely make people stop and say WOW! I've been a fan of Tord Boontje's work for awhile. I love the whimsy with which his work is infused. I've admired his Midsummer lights and thought about buying one, but never did. The style wasn't exactly "Porcelain." A couple months ago, I was flipping through a design magazine and when I saw Boontje's Icarus light, I gasped and oooooo'ed. It's theatrical, sleek and delicate all at once. Now this light is definitely up my alley!

I love this light, but every time I see it, I think of it as a mullet wig.

That's hilarious!!! Business in the front and party in the back.

I actually think this piece is quite graceful and beautiful. Though I don't know what kind of message your sending about the nature of the room it is in.
