Evoking the image of snakes with its patterned, flexible black cabling, the Alizz F. Cooper light is not just a lighting fixture - it is an ever-evolving artistic statement.

"For me it’s always important that lamps can be used in different ways, and aren’t made to suit just one room, or one type of furnishing in a room. Our products are designed for long-term use, which means people should want to use them even after moving home or redecorating”, emphasizes the designer.

As well as being functional, the flexibility of this lamp, which is available as a ceiling, floor or table lamp, is also aesthetically pleasing: the bends and knots create a certain degree of visual energy in combination with the lamp’s clear contours. And what fits in very well with this concept, adds Maurer, is "the hose’s design – black with the yellow wavy line”.
