The Happy Lamp will surely propagate a peppy, pleasant and playful ambiance in any and all living spaces -- the claim does lie right in its name. Of course, the design backs that claim up. Simple, yet adorable, it boasts a blissful branching aesthetic that not only focuses on form, but also addresses function.

Designed by VaughShannon, which was founded by Trevor Vaugh and Nic Shannon, the Happy Lamp offer a more convenient and ergonomic location for the lighting switch. What looks to be a whim of design actually serves a practical purpose. The mid-height ‘branch’ sports the switch, allowing easy access to turning the Happy Lamp on.

As the designers say about the Happy Lamp, “The final design, which was led purely by function, takes on an anthropomorphic form, which in turn creates his charming personality.” Stats for Blithely Branching Lighting Trending: Older & Mild
