at art paris 2011, amsterdam gallery art affairs presented dutch designer pieke bergman‘s new additional pieces to her every growing ‘design virus’ collection. the series of light bulbs take on forms which have gone way out of line, appearing as bulbous forms extending from industrial lamp shades. they take on various sizes and shapes, large masses taking over and in some cases, appearing as if they are almost starting to consume the pieces of furniture in which they are placed.
