Thermoplastic Resin, PVD gold finish, Stainless Steel, Electronic component, USB Rechargeable
[L 10.24" x W 3.94"]
The re-edition is a new and improved version that expands its use: Firebird 2.0 is an electric arc lighter that supplies enough heat to light a cigarette, incense, a candle, tea lights, gas burners and paper in a fireplace, etc.
The Firebird gas lighter was first created in 1993 following a design workshop to investigate the communicative dimension of objects, their ability to inspire, intrigue and amuse people, in a word, to relate to them. Over the years it became a real pop icon. It is one of the most explicit and "courageous" of all the design objects in the Alessi catalogue with its reference to the "erotic code".
