This is a cute lamp with a cute name, Giffy. Inspired by giraffe, Leanter designed this cute and beautiful lamp which will accompany you when you are working or reading something on your desk. The body is made of 18 mm thick birch plywood while the shade is made of 1.5mm thick aluminum. There are several color to choose: blue, pink, yellow, orange, red, black, and green. I like the green one though. More information by Leanter:

A beautiful desk lamp with a unique nature inspired design that brings cheerful moments into everyday life.

The lamp is 45 cm high, 17 cm wide and 34 cm long. The body of the lamp is made out of 18 mm thick birch plywood and is coated with clear lacquer. The shade is made out of 1,5 mm thick aluminum and is powder coated with a smooth surface paint. Currently available paint codes of the shades are: blue RAL5012, green RAL6018, yellow RAL 1023, orange RAL2008. The lamp uses a GU10 LED bulb with a maximum wattage of 8W (the bulb is not included). The textile cable is 1,5 m long measured from the body of the lamp and the colour of the cable matches up with the colour of the shade. The plug of the lamp is a non-rewirable flat, two-pole Europlug Type C. A UK adapter is added with a purchase of a UK delivery address. The lamp uses a simple to use ON/OFF switch

The lamp is delivered in three major pieces. You have to assemble the plywood body of the lamp. It means you have to insert the front and rear legs to the main body. It is a simple process that requires no tools. You don’t have to assemble anything related to electrics – it is all assembled and tested before delivery. You also receive a user manual to help you with the assembly and use of the lamp.

Giffy 17,7″ design lamp meets all the necessary EU safety regulations and is CE approved.

I designed this table lamp because I wanted to have a lamp on my table that would have more emotions than function within – I find that a lot of products in our everyday life are moving too much towards functionality.

The inspiration for the shape of the Giffy table lamp was born when I was looking at a photo that pictured giraffes standing majestically next to Acacia trees in a beautiful sunset of the savanna. That kind of view represents very well the diversity, beauty and functionality that exists in nature. And the existence of all of these sides is what inspired me most in the process of creating the Giffy lamp – in that shape there is function working together with beauty.
