Animals are our close friends and we often use their image for our creations and inventions. We learn new things from them and we honor them by shaping things to their image. One example for that would be the Rabbit Lamp. It was designed in 2006 by FRONT for Moooi© and it’s one of those items that is cute and functional at the same time.
The lamp has a design that is faithful to the animal that inspired. The dimensions reproduce the real thing and respecting them was easy, considering the fact a rabbit’s real dimensions pretty much coincide with those of a standard lamp. With this piece you can bring a piece of nature into your home. You can use the lamp in the bedroom, on the nightstand but also in other spaces such as the living room, the office, studio, library, etc. It would be a beautiful and interesting accent piece anywhere you place it.
It’s very interesting and refreshing to see a lamp that doesn’t feature the same abstract and linear shape as most of the pieces from this category. The Rabbit Lamp does more than just illuminate a room. It transmits emotions and requests responses from its users. The lamp is made from PVC/cotton laminate on a metal structure and polyester. Its dimensions are 54×28,5cm | 21.3″x11.2″ and it only comes in black.
