Inspired by tradition: Tweetie by Casamania

Italian brand Casamania launched the Tweetie lamp. Designed by Jake Phipps, the lighting was inspired by the tradition of keeping caged canaries in the home, dating back to the Egyptian and Roman civilizations, and in Middle Ages and in English courts, when it was considered a sign of good manners to have canaries in the sitting room.

The bird and cage design was made in collaboration with the ceramic experts at BOSA. While the birds are made from hand-painted black or 24-carat gold-plated ceramic, the frame is made from black-painted or gold-plated metal rods. Tweetie is available in two sizes. LED lighting is mounted in the base of the cage, covered by a double layer of polycarbonate.

Casamania was founded in 1984.
