Tongs by Takashi Sato

Tokyo-based designer Takashi Sato has designed a lamp that holds a bulb in place using a tong-like structure.

Inspired by "the tong of the kitchen tool," the aluminium Tongs lamp has a slot in the shade to allow a bulb and cord to be added and held in place by the structure.

Sato exhibited the lamp at Salone Satellite in Milan this year.

Other projects presented by the Japanese designer included a coat stand where hangers form the pegs, a felt-covered, folding, plywood stool called Pata and a mirror which appears to form a hole in the wall.
