Compact & Cute Lamp That Fits All Environments Is A Miniaturized Version Of A 1970s Lamp

I have a soft spot in my heart for small yet sensational lighting designs that illuminate spaces with style and functionality. I truly believe a  well-designed lighting piece should not only have the ability to illuminate any living space but also add that extra oomph factor! I mean, of course, we need them to see in the dark, but as highly functional as they should be, a lighting fixture also needs to be aesthetically pleasing, adding an attractive and visually soothing element to your home or office space. And, one such cute and compact lighting design that I recently came across is the Lari Mini Lamp by Karakter.

Designer: Karakter

The Lari Mini Lamp is designed by Danish design brand Karakter, and it is the miniature and renewed version of a lamp that was originally designed by the late Italian architect and sculptor Angelo Mangiarotti in 1978. Much like the original Lari, this mini lamp features a rounded-square silhouette, amped by a ribbed central section that is constructed from hand-blown glass. The lamp has a rather distinctive and unique shape that is quite difficult to miss!

The little lamp consists of a glass volume made up of two bulbs that emit a warm white glow. The two bulbs are placed against a black oval-shaped base, creating a geometrically interesting piece. The Lari Mini lamp was designed to be more practical, functional, and accessible than the original full-sized lighting design, building a piece that is easier to use and place in your home. The lamp is rechargeable via USV-C cable, offering 12 hours of illumination once fully charged.

“Mangiarotti had a very specific approach to lighting,” said Christian Elving, co-founder and CEO of Karakter. “His designs seem to constantly play with the balance between soft sensuousness and robust practicality.”

The thoughtfully designed Lari Mini Lamp is quite versatile, and it was designed for domestic, mixed-use, and hospitality environments. You can truly place it anywhere – from cozy and comfy reading corners in your home to dining tables at elegant restaurants. The Lari Mini Lamp is created to find its place and spot in all kinds of environments.
