Called Gifu, the lamps comprise wooden batons joined with wing nuts so they can be collapsed and the legs can be moved into different poses.
A naked bulb hangs from a flex that's threaded though each 'neck'.
Here are some more details from Velasco and Stephens:
The family of lamps GIFU, designed by María del Pilar Velasco and Pau Stephens, shown at the Milan Furniture Fair 2012.
The lamps are made of wood and inspired by the fauna from the Savannah.Their designers ,who work in Madrid, will be presenting them at the stand of IED at Salone Satellite.
Like a family in which a mother cares for her children, family GIFU is integrated by several lamps of different sizes, the users can create their own clan.Each lamp is made of 5 pieces of beech wood of two sizes, forming the four legs and long neck. GIFU is an articulated lamp, that allows it to be placed in different positions and be foldable.
About the designers
The designers Maria del Pilar Velasco (Ecuador) and Pau Stephens (Mexico) meet each other in the mayor of product design at IED Madrid, which becomes the nexus between these two points of view of the design. Together they made a number of projects in which the Selfproduction and traditional crafts become extremely important.
