The Moooi Perch Tree Suspension Light is a real classic of contemporary lighting design. Building on Yamac's famed Perch series of lamps and light fittings, the Tree Light is an oversized configuration that features twenty-five different sources of light, with the neat contrast between the brass of the tree and the white of the birds making for a highly impactful piece. The sheer size and scale of this piece means that it demands attention, with the sculptural light making for a magnificent centrepiece to all manner of spaces, both commercial or otherwise.
Umut Yamac is a London based architect and designer with Turkish heritage. He graduated from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL with a distinction in design and went on to work for a number of internationally renowned architects and designers before establishing his own practice in 2011.
He works on a diverse range of projects from the scale of the object to the architectural. The common thread that unites each piece is the emphasis placed on the relationship with the user; and the desire to offer different levels of engagement, from purely functional to the playful and imaginary.
