The Moooi Rabbit Table Lamp, designed by Front. L39
Posted on September 07 2016
Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren are the members of the Swedish design group Front. Their works are based on common discussions, explorations and experiments and they are all involved in the projects from initial ideas to the final product. Front's design objects often communicate a story to the observer about the design process, about the material it is made of or about conventions within the design field. In their work they have assigned part of the making of design to animals, computers or machines. They have made a constantly changing interior, created objects with explosions, robotic furniture and a range of furniture inspired by their fascination with magic.
It’s very interesting and refreshing to see a lamp that doesn’t feature the same abstract and linear shape as most of the pieces from this category. The Rabbit Lamp does more than just illuminate a room. It transmits emotions and requests responses from its users. The lamp is made from PVC/cotton laminate on a metal structure and polyester. Its dimensions are 54×28,5cm | 21.3″x11.2″ and it only comes in black.
The lamp has a design that is faithful to the animal that inspired. The dimensions reproduce the real thing and respecting them was easy, considering the fact a rabbit’s real dimensions pretty much coincide with those of a standard lamp. With this piece you can bring a piece of nature into your home. You can use the lamp in the bedroom, on the nightstand but also in other spaces such as the living room, the office, studio, library, etc. It would be a beautiful and interesting accent piece anywhere you place it.
