Young and Battaglia have taken the most recognisable and iconic pairs of eyes from the movie stars of the 20th century screen to create this range of modern day pop art lamp shades. The comic-book style halftone dotted design of the eyes in black and white adds to the pop art feel. The lamps come in two versions, the Marilyn which features Marilyn Monroe’s eyes and the Audrey which features Audrey Hepburn. Marilyn Monroe was chosen by Andy Warhol for his seminal portrait and these eyes have become embedded in our culture as the epitome of glamour and vulnerability. The Audrey Hepburn features the famous almond shaped eyes of this elegant movie star who was the embodiment of sophistication. The Eyes Lamps are a celebration of these stars of the silver screen.
The pieces in the collection are selected to inspire us, many tell a story, express a poetic notion, a thought or an experiment, others just make us smile!
