There are a few items on the market that satisfy as both a light fixture and a side table, but the added appeal of the Plockepinn Lamp is its playful character. Designer Mårten Andersson could have minimally assembled a bulb, a post, a stand and a surface, yet he opted to compose a much more endearing object.

The erectness of the floor lamp portion relies on a pair of supportive inclined posts on which the longer wooden pole can lean. The arrangement here at the base is somewhat reminiscent of simple tepee construction. A circular plane with a hole in the center helps to keep the intersection of the pieces secure.

A couple of other elements that make the Plockepinn Lamp so charming are its vibrant color options and the way that its cord is woven down its spine.
