Nicolo Taliani's Lamp Displays Wound Cord Inside of Clear Glass Base

Visible Cord Lamp: Love It or Leave It?


I spend so much time trying to hide my cords, and wind my cords, that sometimes I just want to be totally rid of cords. That's why I would have never considered something that's normally the general bane of my existence to be beautiful. I am totally speechless about this lamp — a design presented by Nicolo Taliani at this year's ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair).

The sheer modernness of it — the silhouette, color, glass base — makes the tangled cord inside work, while a more complicated design would just make it look like a mess. But for me, I'd buy this lamp as soon as it was available and put it in my place in a heartbeat.

What's your take? Hot piece or hot mess?
