The Dubai-based Lebanese designer and architect Fadi Sarieddine, founder of Fadi Sarieddine Design Studio, has introduced a limited edition table lamp inspired by street artist Banksy.
The lamp, named Hey Banksy, has a base that resembles a spray can; the ‘spray’ from it is represented as a glass cone shading the bulb.
The lamp will be released in a capsule collection with a choice of marble or aluminium base. The cone’s interior has Mahmoud Darwish’s poem ‘On this land’, designed and calligraphed by Lebanese artist Naji el-Mir.
Hey Banksy was unveiled during Milan Design Week. Sarieddine describes it as “a tribute to the anonymous artist and all graffitists whose work combine art and social activism to spread their message across the world. With a spray can in hand, these artists enliven human-made walls with their creations and shed light on social, political and human right issues”.
