You can keep letting it irritate the hell out of you. Break your neck tripping over it. Or surrender, hide it behind the skirting board or press it into a groove. But it’s smarter to make friends with the enemy, as so amusingly illustrated by cord light, which turns the cursed flex cord into a simple eye catcher. We probably shouldn’t claim that the lamp conveys a message, but just for fun, how about ‘make peace not war’? From a snake nest of winding cords, this lamp shoots straight up and stands tall on its own. Surprising the eye by challenging the unexpected, the Cord Light is simple, yet characteristic. The cord, one of the most disturbing decorating details has been made useful. The piece is made out of a standard bulb, textile cord and steel tube.
