Inspired by graffiti, nature, sculpture, lighting, music, animals, and souvenirs, designer Charles Kalpakian’s playful ‘dog’ lamp is an innovative and functional lighting and storage unit. The dog lamp stores books on his back and lights up when you pull on his tail. A dynamo stores energy and provides light.
This fun and friendly light is sure to be a hit with children and adults alike. Kalpakian is doing man’s best friend justice.
Implications - In the last few years, there has been an increased premium placed on owning products that are original in style and design. A company can capitalize on this by altering every day products with avant-garde designs or colors, providing consumers with the ability to spice up the mundane with style.
