Designed by J. P. Meulendijks, the Bird in Hand light for Plankton is made of ecolotek, a new enviro-friendly compostable material and is based on creating bird shadows with our hands.


"The lamp is based on, and tribute to the universal art of hand shadows; making shadows on the wall using your hands to create birds, rabbits,and other figures. Playing with light and hand shadows is a centuries old past time long before electric light was invented. BIRD IN HAND plays with this concept: all of the hands are positioned to look like a flock of birds, flying out in circles. The shadows cast on the wall looks like birds. This results in a very expressive, dynamic and striking looking lamp, with layers of humor and poetry hidden in the design."
