The 'Bicho' floor standing lamps are the design work of architect Martinho Pita and draw inspiration from wild animals. The word bicho translates from Portuguese to creatures, which is a fitting name for the 'Bicho' lamps that are inherently gangly and beautifully designed.

Each of the 'Bicho' lamps are made from Portuguese Holly Oak trees and features a bare bulb that has been implemented into the top portion of the structure with the electrical cord feeding through the hollowed out branch.

The 'Bicho' floor standing lamps are all created with a wild aesthetic in mind and draw inspiration from creatures such as snakes, giraffes and beyond in a subtle way. None of the 'Bicho' lamps are actually crafted to look like a particular animal, but the final product allows onlookers to let their imagination soar.
