It’s used to say that inspiration suddenly flashes, like a light bulb in your head. Italian designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba shows that this is exactly what happens, but the bulb is actually outside. The designer calls himself simply Marcantonio, so is the name of the famous engraver of the Italian Renaissance, also Marcantonio Raimondi, who represented the works of Raphael in his engravings.

Looking at this lamp, it becomes clear that it embodies the idea of saying: "Switch on your brain!".

There are other less ironic and more minimalist versions of the lamp Idea: on a brass mini-rod, or simply attached to the wall or ceiling by glass, not by brass part, unexpectedly! But not for Marcantonio, who constantly creates ironic design objects.
