Flatterby by Ingo MaurerDecember 29, 2017
Flatterby is a hanging lamp with ten hand-made butterflies flitting around the bulb. The bulb seems to attract the insects as if it offers something they need. It’s a facsimile of sunlight—but it’s also something else. By seeing the butterflies’ attraction to the lamp, we subconsciously acknowledge our need for illumination, both literal and spiritual.
A 3D printed ring surrounds the bulb like a halo, giving the beautiful insects somewhere to land. Maurer chose the butterfly species himself, which include the subtle Rice Paper Butterfly and the iridescent Blue Morpho, as well as a small Brown Moth.
