repurposing common household objects, italian studio design MID has created the ‘fantasia’ lamps family. the ‘stolen’ items such as brooms from the storage closet, greens from food reserves and screwdrivers from a tool box are used to support the structure, offering multiple insertion options for the legs of the light. 3D printed components form the necessary parts between the illumination source, the remaining help in harmoniously connecting the piece to whatever is lying around at the time.
