Product news: ten metres of electrical cord are coiled around to form the shade of this pendant lamp by Italian designer Nicolò Barlera.
Nicolò Barlera used just the cord, plug and bulb socket in an attempt to minimalise the amount of parts used. "I found an easy and effective way to use fewer components," Barlera told Dezeen.
Electricity runs through the entire length of the spiralled cord before the power reaches the bulb.
The pendant shape was formed by winding the cord around a mould then doubling it back.
