Icons, at home imagines some of the most celebrated lighting designs in our contemporary domestic spaces. Imagine how their lives have changed while so many of us have been at home more often this year! In some ways these creatures are as much our companions as the human partners, sourdough starters, and other "companion species" (for more on this see Donna Haraway) that share our spaces-and they have the personalities for it, too.
Cards feature the following iconic lamps:
Lucellino lamp, Ingo Maurer
Akari light, Isamu Noguchi
Tube light, Eileen Gray
Aggregato lamp, Enzo Mari
Super Table lamp, Martine Bedin
