Whimsical Table Lamp by Leanter: Giraffe Inspired

Lamps stand tall on desks so why not use the visual of the tallest animal on our planet to represent a table lamp? That is exactly what Markus Oder of Leanter did when he created this whimsical table lamp – the Giffy. Rather than going for a straight visual representation, Markus instead chose a whimsical approach that is sure to bring a smile to all. I know I smile every time I look at these fun and colorful lamps.

The idea for the Giffy Table Lamp came to Markus after looking at a photo of giraffes standing next to Acacia trees surrounded by the colors of the sunset on the Savannah in Central Africa.

The beautiful pattern on a giraffe’s body has been reinterpreted as voids within the birch plywood and the 1.5m long color matched fabric covered chord casually winds through it. A simple on/off toggle is positioned on the chord where it would meet a tabletop.
