The Burlesque Suspension lamp by Joe Velluto of JVLT may strike you as a very odd choice for a lighting fixture. But then again, imagine it in a clothing boutique, fashion showroom, above a runway, in a giant walk-in closet, hanging in a fabric store, the right restaurant or master bedroom and it takes on a whole new appeal.
Inspired by the act of disrobing and tossing one's clothes about, the fixture is a mix of shirts, skirts and pants composed of fine silk and cotton fabrics over a methacrylate shade. Made and packed in Italy, the clothes that create the lamp's silhouette are accented with Swarovski crystal buttons, adding some sparkle to the very unusual lighting fixture which exudes a sort of backlit diffused illumination.
The Burlesque 3 lamp shown above is available from P&V Lighting, contact them for purchase information.
