There isn’t a universe in which a cat frolicking around with a ball of yarn isn’t fun. Whether you like cats or not, there’s no denying that they’re a curious, entertaining species and if it weren’t for them, the internet would be a very different place.
The Miau lamp by Tati Ferrucio embodies that element of playfulness with a lamp and holder that’s inspired by a cat playing with a ball of wool. “The design concept was developed in order to allow the customer to make an emotional connection to the product. It intends to link user’s emotions to the lamp through their love for animals or even the memories of their first pets”, says Ferrucio. Made from wood, the cat comes with positionable arms, allowing you to make it stand, crouch, or sit down, while the ball-shaped light comes with a cord that literally wraps around the cat in a chaotic fashion, tying the two elements together quite literally! The cord can be unwound to create distance between the cat and the lamp, allowing you to use it as a floor-based light, a tabletop light, or even have the lamp hanging off your mantelpiece. No matter how you position it, there’s always visual drama between the curious cat and the chaotic ball of wool. Ultimately, it evokes a positive emotional connection and sparks joy, no matter how old or young you are!
