Dope lamps made from pruning branches

Pruning is one of those activities that cleanse a tree of wasteful material, but where do all those discarded branches go? Some of them are picked up Martinho Pita to become Bichos, lamps made from branches.

‘Bichos’ – which in Portugese means creatures – are individually handmade and unique, as each branch serves as its own template to the construction of the lamp. Educated as an architect, designer Martinho Pita learned how to turn wood into lamps from his father, who was an artist, explaining the lamps artistic but functional structure.

If you’re into the ethereal wooden look, or just unique pieces to have around your space, you should get your hands on one of these right now. The worse thing that could happen is you seeing a formation you actually like, then watching as someone swoops in to get that exclusive piece you’ll never see again.
