51 Caged Innovations

From Singing Handbags to Golden Birdcage Lamps

— July 7, 2009 — Art & Design
This cluster of caged innovations ranges from cage dresses to glass bird cages, and so many peculiar designs in between. While some are likely inspired by birds, others look like they were inspired by edgy bedroom activities.

Included in this gallery are golden luxury bird cages that function not as avian homes, but as romantic lanterns along a French canal, as well as various fashions including cage dresses, skirts and footwear.

Implications - This collection of innovative cages will have you reconsidering the purpose and function of a cage. This collection certainly proves that the cage aesthetic is hot in many different areas. Take a look for yourself.
