CRANE LAMP by Animaro
Animaro is a design studio founded by Matt Gilbert based in East London. Matt has a background in architecture and enjoys drawing on architectural and structural principles in his furniture design. He draws inspiration not from other furniture, but from inventors, mathematicians and artists. He is particularly interested in expressing forces and material properties in a very clear and playful way.
Inspired by the elongation of a Crane’s neck when catching prey, the Crane Lamp is a playful moving desk lamp that can be adapted for different working set-ups. The structure is robust walnut sections connected to a concrete base via an axle and brass wheel. The cable runs neatly through the brass fixings.
