The family of Perch Lights - suspension, wall, table, and floor - was recently introduced by Moooi, Netherlands, and is now available in the United States. The forms were inspired by the designer's simple observation of the "elegance and beauty of a bird sitting on its perch." Each version of the Perch Light features an abstracted bird form (singly or in multiples) composed of folded paper with brass finish details that is precisely balanced on a cylindrical brass finish integrated, truncated "perch." The bird is illuminated through contact with its "perch" allowing it to actually move/rock with a gentle touch and remain illuminated while it again finds its balance.
Perch is available in several versions - table, floor, two wall sconces (corded and recessed), and two suspension lamps ("branch" and "tree"). Illustrated in the above photo are the table and floor versions of the Perch Light.
Perch Light was also created as a wall sconce - available in corded or recessed versions. Each version of the Perch Light is composed of steel, aluminum, and PP. Its illumination source is solid state LED - all examples are 2700 Kelvin; the wattage and associated lumens vary based upon each design within the series.
The table and floor versions of Perch Light can be ordered now for delivery in October; the suspension and wall versions have an expected delivery date in early November.
