Monkeying about

We know what the British X Factor is like. Stop for a minute then and think how over the top the Italian version must be.

No these aren’t contestants…..we really wish they were! These “Monkey Lamps”, created by Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba, are a collection of lamps shaped like our long lost cousins, in three different positions, each with a LED light in hand. They featured a few weeks ago on the Italian X Factor as supporting actors for Giò Sada, in the preparation of Peter Gabriel’s legendary hit : ‘Shock the Monkey’.

The Monkey Lamp uses a naturalistic figure to explore relationships between people and animals. Here, the resulting trio of lamps has a human quality to its expression at the same time that it resembles something out of a science museum. Each of the three primates is quite detailed and poses sitting, standing, or hanging while holding an exposed LED bulb.

Made of resin and hand-finished in white, the designs have a contemporary, consciously artistic quality to them. As well as being the cutest lights we have quite seriously ever seen!
