This lamp was inspired by tulips – and you’ll see it in its shape – it’s Bloemi lamp by Italian designer Mario Alessiani for furniture brand Formabilio. The Dutch word “bloem” means “flower”, and padded panels based on tulip petals form a shade. The rounded panels that make up the shade are formed around sections of MDF, which are padded in polyurethane foam then covered in a cotton and acrylic-blend recycled fabric. Six petals are fixed to a hexagonal wooden structure, which also holds the bulb in the center. Arranged in a ring like a flower head, the sections overlap so they each rest behind the one before and hide the wooden frame from view. The lamps hang from the ceiling on a thin wire and the electrical cord meanders up to the ceiling rose.
