Lighting comes in all shapes and sizes, and has since been celebrated as a standout piece in a home. It’s no longer a purely functional object as demonstrated by these three unique pieces that disguise themselves as decor.
Is it a lighting or a decorative object? Well, it’s both! The irreverent, one-of-a-kind sculpture that takes on the shape of a cow cleverly masquerades as a lifestyle accessory for the home. Put this at your entryway or living room; it’ll surely be a conversation starter! Just don’t try to milk it. Available at The Shop @ Siri House.
Up, up and away! Inspired by the hit animation film Up, the namesake lighting designed by Marcel Wanders for Roche Bobois resembles a hot air balloon. The lampshade is made of white 3D fabric and rests on a concrete base. This quirky lamp is available as table and floor variants.
#3 Kartell TOY
The iconic bear of Moschino, relaunched by the fashion house’s designer, Jeremy Scott becomes a table lamp for Kartell. It conveys the playful, irreverent and colourful style that the two brands have in common. Despite being named TOY, it’s actually not a toy. Tongue-in-cheek? Totally! But we love it and think it makes a fashionable addition to a child’s bedroom though. Available at Lifestorey.
