Throughout history human beings have replicated the lines, forms and colours of the natural world in art, craft and design. The neck of a goose is one such example, where ‘gooseneck’ refers to an elongated form with a hairpin curve. It seems we are naturally attracted to full-bodied, sensual curves and so the nature-inspired form of the gooseneck is satisfying to the eye. In lighting, the neck of the goose is replicated in the post of the light that attaches to a structure, (usually a wall) at one end and suspends a light pendant at the other. Gooseneck lighting has an old-world charm but because it is a classic form it doesn’t date. The natural geometry of a goosenecks light can be incorporated into a variety of old-world and contemporary decors.
