Why is it Special?
The Firebird gas lighter was 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. Alessi proposes a reissue that expands its use: Firebird 2.0 is an electric arc lighter that supplies enough heat to light a cigarette, a candle or whatever.
