Arc lighter

Firebird 2.0


Design: Guido Venturini


The Firebird 2.0 is a rechargeable electric arc lighter, an upgraded version of an Alessi pop design icon first designed in 1993 by Guido Venturini. This cutting-edge lighter works without flammable liquid, producing a small electric arc that supplies enough heat to light a candle without a real flame. Famed for its memorable and titillating shape, the original Firebird was born out of a design workshop to investigate the ability of objects to inspire, intrigue and amuse.


Electric arc lighter in thermoplastic resin. Rechargeable.
