Bichos by Martinho Pita @FGIDEAS
“Bicho” is a portuguese word without a direct translation. It means something like a “creature”…a wild creature!
“Bichos” are hand-made lamps and each branch is unique creating a new range of lamp species. Although it doesn’t refer to any particular animal that i know of. The light source of every member of this family is made by textile-covered electrical cords that run through each lamp in a different way, resembling blood as a life-giving source. This species are born from the pruning of portuguese Holm (Holly) Oak trees. Its wood is used since ancient times and is known for its hardness and high quality firewood.
