‘tuca-tuca’ draws its stance from that of a toucan

 

 

presented by foundry at maison et object 2013, ‘tuca-tuca’ by milan-based designer elia mangia exudes a spirit of playfulness.its structure consists of a carved and turned maple stem and a metal painted shade whose movement imitates a jackknife’s blade – allowing the lampshade to close in a flush position when not in use. warm LEDs reflect off the natural wood surface, producing a soft illuminating glow towards the surrounding environment.

  • My approach is spmile- if you see it on my vids then i recommend it. If you see me using it then it is becuase I feel it is of quality. I dont want to have 500 BS vids. Anyone can say something bad over the internet. i would rather have 500 positive vids and let people take the hint on the brands and products that do not make the cut.If I get something bad for a review then I send it back or dont do the review. That is me. I try to take the high road.
