Design duo JamesPlumb may have just created the perfect, no-hassle pet: the ‘Albie’ Puppy Light is shaped like a beloved pet, doesn’t shed, and offers a functional light source.

Okay, so it doesn’t exactly resemble a cuddly pet, but the Albie Puppy Light is undoubtedly a unique design concept. The designers, James Russell and Hannah Plumb, created only 25 of these wheeled doggie lamps for a limited edition set to be exhibited at Tent London this weekend.

Made from recycled materials including reclaimed wood and wheels from old toys, the Albie Puppy Light "is an eco-friendly incarnation of man’s best friend and a clever reminder of earth’s best ally--sustainable design," as Inhabitots puts it. Stats for Wooden Dog Lamps Trending: Older & Chilly
