Been curious about this desk lamp from the 80’s.
It’s a plastic toucan with a fluorescent lamp in its beak, designed by an unknown H.T. Huang, sometimes falsely credited to Ettore Sottsass.
Cooper Hewitt sells them for 450$ (!) http://shop.cooperhewitt.org/p/4495/Pelican-Table-Lamp
but they pop around Etsy and Ebay with a slightly lower price tag
This item is unavailable - Etsy
What the story on this one?
anyone got more info on the design and/or manufacture of these?
are they really that rare?
and how do I get my hands on one???
