Product description

Bd was launched in 1972 as a producer of contemporary furniture with a piece that is now a part of design history: the Flamingo lamp by the Portuguese architect siza vieira. The current halogen version was introduced in 1985.

ble and detachable structure, the mobility of its very delicate wings, all allow for unsuspected uses. It can be a substitute for a candle at dinner, light up a picture or bookrest, allow reading in bed without disturbing the possible bedfellow...”.
