Fondue lamp shaped like a cheese-melting pot by Luca Nichetto

Stockholm 2014: Italian designer Luca Nichetto has produced a lamp based on a cheese fondue pot for Swedish firm David Design.

Luca Nichetto's Fondue lamp takes its inspiration from traditional European fondue cauldrons, which are kept above a heat source to slowly melt cheese. "The Fondue lamp is merging different traditions, the south European and the north European," said Nichetto.

The amber-coloured glass pendant is suspended to resemble the shape of the cauldrons. A metal element runs through the glass from top to bottom, kinked in the centre where it supports the horizontal bulb.

The power cable can be attached to either end of the frame so it can run from a source on the ceiling or the floor. "The output of the power cable, which is generally concealed or made less evident... becomes a feature of the lamp," the designer said.

David Design presented the lamp at Stockholm Furniture Fair and Northern Light Fair last week. Nichetto has also designed a lamp inspired by Darth Vader's mask for the brand.

    Bouroullec’s Light house + Castiglioni’s parentesi = please a little more of work Mr Nichetto.

    Looks like it was “inspired” by Castiglioni.

    I quite like the raw quality to it. May seem a bit harsh but the tinted shell and simple yet intriguing design makes this lamp exactly what I’d want in an interior.
