Friendly Anthropomorphic Desk Lamps

The 'Mr. Watt' Desk Lamp is Playful, Customizable and More

— March 1, 2021 — Tech
The 'Mr. Watt' desk lamps are a charming range of illuminators for the desktop or bedside table that will provide a friendly, interactive way to enhance the space. The light features an anthropomorphized design that will offer illumination through the eyes in order to give it character and make it more like a friend to keep nearby than just a desk lamp. The unit can provide passive or direct illumination to meet the needs of users perfectly, while a series of additional accessories including glasses, hairstyles and even clothing can be added on to further give it character.

The 'Mr. Watt' desk lamps are the design work of Norbert Schlotter and DesignNest, and come in several styles to choose from including Boy, Girl, Mother, Father and even Cat and Dog.
Trend Themes
1. Anthropomorphic Lighting - Designing lamps with human-like features adds a playful and interactive element to lighting products, increasing their appeal and marketability.
2. Customizable Lighting - Offering additional accessories for customization, on top of the lighting function, allows for personalization by customers and creates new revenue streams.
3. Emotional Connection with Products - Designing in a way that users can interact with and feel an emotional attachment to everyday objects adds a level of comfort and fun, and can be a key selling point.
Industry Implications
1. Home Decor - Add these charming desk lamps to the home decor market, which is always looking for unique and customizable products that can add personal touches to any space.
2. Toy Manufacturing - Incorporating these lamps, which double as cute and interactive toys, into toy manufacturing for children can offer a new product category and expand revenue streams.
3. Office Furniture and Supplies - With an increasing focus on wellness and personalization in workspaces, these anthropomorphic lamps make for a playful and functional addition to office decor and can provide a unique selling point for businesses.
