Let your light shine
Practical things can also be fun. The Danish company Piffany Copenhagen specialises in designs that combine functionality with character. Between its three brands Ekta Handvaerk, Uyuni Lighting and Mr. Wattson, it offers a wealth of practical and carefully designed furniture and home accessories.
Piffany’s Mr. Wattson table lamps illustrate this beautifully, combining a light source inspired by the headlight of an Italian Vespa scooter with an adjustable ash wood body. The result is like some character out of an animated film and is not only elegant and amusing to look at but also extremely flexible, its ingenious structure allowing the lamp to be positioned and angled in all kinds of different ways. The lamp holder is available in a variety of sizes and colours.
And as though all this weren’t exciting enough, you can give Mr. Wattson a little extra pep by getting him a snowboard or surfboard, both being available as accessories. Further models are offered in which the design of the shade has been modified to allow the lamp to be mounted on the wall or ceiling.
