The concept of having fun with interior design is explored enchantingly in the Spiff Lamp. A thick frame of traditional Nordic wood has been assembled in an unconventional arrangement, complete with timber hinges and a hidden cord track. The moveable joint allows the user to adjust the angle of the light, whether it is used as a table lamp or a climbing wall fixture.
According to the creators, the composition of this playful piece was inspired by wooden toy design. With this in mind, perhaps you'll consider the anatomy of the illuminator in a different light? Looking at this peculiar object by the Gridy studio of Norway, I picture the form of the Spiff Lamp as a person's upper body with the lampshade as the head and the shorter two limbs as the arms. There it lies, looking up to give you light.
