Edison's Nightmare Wall Light

Regular Price: £348.61

Special Price £261.40



Mouth-blown by master glassblowers, the Edison’s Nightmare Wall Light was designed by Harry Thaler for Davide Groppi and elevates the typical incandescent bulb to sculptural heights by literally nailing it to the wall.

A whimsical piece, the Edison’s Nightmare Wall Light marks the phasing out of classic Edison bulbs while paying homage to the inventor’s brilliant creation that improved modern life permanently.

Specially blown to feature a hole that runs through the top of the bulb, the nail element seamlessly fits through the glass, giving the impression that the bulb has an uncannily fluid surface.

Established in the small Italian town of Piacenza, Davide Groppi has been inventing and producing unique lighting solutions since the 1980s with a focus on simplicity, emotion, weightlessness and creative invention.

Sure to become a talking point in your space, the Edison’s Nightmare Wall Light by Harry Thaler for Davide Groppi takes classic bulbs to another dimension and would make a unique statement piece for a wall in your home. 

Requires 1 x Max 16W G4 bulb (included).
