Nicolo Taliani's Lamp Displays Wound Cord Inside of Clear Glass Base

Visible Cord Lamp: Love It or Leave It?

I spend so much time trying to hide my cords, and wind my cords, that sometimes I just want to be totally rid of cords. That's why I would have never considered something that's normally the general bane of my existence to be beautiful. I am totally speechless about this lamp — a design presented by Nicolo Taliani at this year's ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair).

The sheer modernness of it — the silhouette, color, glass base — makes the tangled cord inside work, while a more complicated design would just make it look like a mess. But for me, I'd buy this lamp as soon as it was available and put it in my place in a heartbeat.

What's your take? Hot piece or hot mess?

At first I thought it was a DIY with one of those big orange extension cords... and then I took a closer look. When I make one for myself, I promise the plug won't be so ugly :)

I like it, but it would only be practical if the cord could be extended or retracted from within the base.

I can't decde. But I think I too would like it if it were filled with cord.

I would like it if it were completely stuffed full with cord, then it would make sort of an interesting design. Think its just looks kind of messy how it is.

I take every effort to hide cords too, including running them through the walls and under the carpet. I think this design looks messy, but contained. However, I wouldn't keep it in a colorful or busy room, and I don't think this design is strong enough to hold a focal point in a minimal one.
