Unadorned yet full of energy, contemporary and elegant: Edison’s Tail moves freely through space and reveals that bringing light and vitality can go hand in hand.
Introduced successfully by the inventor Thomas Edison, the light bulb is – more than in any other collection – an integral part of the overall design. The spirited and energetic shape of Edison’s Tail is evocative of the initial burst of life when a seed opens and through the cracks the first green shots appear.
To see this exact moment, is to see a wonder in the making. To capture this moment, is what Edison’s Tail attempts. Edison’s Tail can be ordered in ten different versions , and several elements can easily be formed into different compositions.
