I enjoy the flexibility of bendable alloys, especially because an entire structure can be produced from just a single piece of material. Take this lamp for example. Tongs, designed by Takashi Sato, uses a plate of aluminum, which is then molded into its final form.
Its smooth curves transition seamlessly from the base to its shade. The composition of Tongs is rather exposed and open. In fact, the bulb is slightly visible when viewed from certain angles. This design properly reduces the aesthetic of the lamp down to its essentials.
