Check Out This Cute Little Guy…

So check out this cute little guy…

It’s called the Sitting Lamp and it’s the brainchild of art director turned product designer, Graeme Bettles. Graeme also happens to be one of the talented Emerging Creatives we saw at this year’s Design Indaba – and we did promise to share our favourites with you!

The adorable task lamp is handmade from gorgeous solid pink beech wood and comes in two sizes. The smaller size makes for a quirky desk lamp, whilst the larger lamp – which at 55cm high isn’t that “little” at all. Just imagine an awesome toddler-sized lamp perched on the edge of your table – the perfect statement piece.

The Pinocchio-esque Sitting Lamp has tons of  personality – the figure can be easily adjusted into a range of different poses to look happy, sad, curious, mischievous, or well… just to cast some light on whatever you’re reading. Shame, maybe one day it too will turn into a real boy…

One thing is sure – it 100% awesome and 250% cute. What do you think? If you love it as much as we do, you can purchase your own little boy Sitting Lamp through 5rooms.com!

Bamboo Desk Lamp by Burghen Siebert

By Marica

By now you all know I have a thing for clever and sexy lighting designs – I therefore just had to share this awesome little desk lamp with you. The Bamboo Desk Lamp, made from steam-bent & laminated bamboo, is the creation of Capetonian Industrial Design student Burghen Siebert.

“The desk lamp was designed with simplicity and function in mind. The lathed lamp shade is toped off with a sand-blasted perspex rim that allows a comfortable 100º glow. The hand spun aluminium fitting allows easy adjustment to the pitch and hight of the lamp, as well as adding a beautiful contrast to the bamboo.”

Isn’t it simply gorgeous?! Well done, Burghen – I would love to see what designs you come up with during the remainder of our studies and thereafter… talented young man!
