Roly-Poly Desk Lamp / interior design objects

Roly-Poly Desk Lamp

Roly-Poly Desk Lamp

Most of the desk lamps have flat bottom in order to stay still on a desk. However, the design requires additional space for a lamp and takes away room for other things.

A roly-poly toy is a toy that rights itself when pushed over, since it has a hemisphere bottom and its center of mass is below the hemisphere. Roly–Poly Desk Lamp is a desk lamp with a hemisphere bottom. This structure makes the lamp stand just like a roly-poly toy and saves room.

Roly-Poly Desk Lamp gives special interaction to users. When users turn the light on, it gently rocks itself. It is operated with solar energy or indoor illumination.
