Are you a sucker for functional designs for home? If you are, then you’ll love this Crane Lampis by London-based design studio Animaro. This lamp is pure functionality and practicality plus a modern design with an industrial feel.
Crane Lampis is a movable light that changes dramatically in height and shape, with a form inspired by the shape of a Crane bird extending its neck to catch prey. The scissor structure of the floor version is composed of 26 hardwood parts, which enable the lamp to expand and contract. Its weight is perfectly counterbalanced by the strength of the spring, ensuring that lamp will hold its shape at any height.
The lamp is available in two sizes: one to sit on the floor and another to light up a desk, and it’s also available in solid walnut, sapele or oak. The joints are machined from brass and hold the cable in place as the lamp changes shape.
