Firebird 2.0 is an electric arc lighter that provides enough heat to light a cigarette, candle, or whatever. The original Firebird gas lighter was created in 1993 following a design workshop to investigate the communicative dimension of objects , their ability to inspire, intrigue and entertain people, in a word, to relate to them. With its cultured but, nevertheless, explicit and erotic allusion, at the time it generated much criticism in the most puritanical circles, both inside and outside the world of design. Over the years it has become a true pop icon and, when it went out of production, it was obsessively sought after by collectors, ready to invest considerable sums to have it in their collections. USB rechargeable arc lighter. Comes with micro USB cable. Rechargeable battery.
