The Giraffe Floor Lamp really looks like a giraffe. A steampunk giraffe, but a giraffe nonetheless. All metal and wood parts, there might not be anything lively about the design, but the squat body coupled with the long, crane-like neck gives it a quirky personality that many will find irresistibly endearing.

Designed by BERNHARD | BURKARD, a studio based in Sweden, the Giraffe Floor Lamp recently made its debut at the SaloneSatelitte 2013 in Milan furniture fair. The level or 'tail' of the lamp works a system of scissors that extends and retracts the neck to allow it to conform to any living space.

Although the Giraffer Floor Lamp would make a cute addition to a home, its size is more suitable to offices and public settings.
