Part lamp part adorable tabletop sculpture, the Playful Dog X Lamp is emotional design at its best! Lamps are mainly utilitarian, sometimes they’re decorative, sometimes they’re IoT-connected, but the Playful Dog X Lamp is just straight-up adorable! Designed to look like a dog playing with a ball, the lamp features a sculpture of a canine that’s got the lamp’s glowing orb in its mouth. Whether switched on or off, the Playful Dog X Lamp is made to delight with its inventive fun approach to lighting design. In fact, some 90’s kids would also call this design rather ‘fetch’!
Designer: haoshi design
“Having a naturally playful dog can definitely add color into your life and give you a lot of joy and fun”, say the designers at Taipei-based haoshi design. “The Playful Dog Lamp from haoshi applies the interesting design of the dog biting the ball, which allows the people’s focus on the ray of light. No matter you leave the house or arrive home, it always gives you a knowing smile to the partner.”
Visually, the lamp can be split into its two parts. The light and the base, if you want to call it that. The light assumes the shape of a translucent ball with an LED lamp inside it, while the fixture sits snugly within the mouth of a Shiba Inu in the downward dog position, making it look like the dog’s playfully biting the lamp. Like all of haoshi’s pieces, the animal is in pure white, giving it a classic appeal that allows it to easily fit into most decor, adding a detailed sculptural accent piece to even minimalist homes!
Designed to be placed anywhere, the Playful Dog X Lamp can be positioned on shelves, tables, or even the floor (provided you don’t have an actual dog who’d get excited at the sight of it). The lamp measures roughly over a foot in length and just about 10 inches in height, and weighs a hefty 2.5 kilos or 5.5 pounds, given that it’s cast from resin. It comes with a warm-white E14 LED light on the inside.
