Dunk is the latest animal to join Animal Farm, the series of endearing and lovable animal lamps. It is a warm and friendly fantasy creature and tells us an intimate story with a simple and elegant style. Its bold and symmetrical forms made out of turned and lacquered wood accentuate the beautiful glass silhouette that forms its body. It acts as a mood light and provides a soft glow that lends a warm and restful atmosphere to the surroundings. Dunk is inspired by the idea of finding beauty and joy in simple objects of daily use.
The product constitutes two distinct materials that provide shape and volume to the idea and make it conducive to the contemporary home environment. Glass and wood, the two materials that provide sensation and add a touch of tradition to the product. The first emanates a warm, magical, diffused light, with an unmistakable brilliance and natural sensations. The wooden head, base and legs that house the glass body use the language of colour, giving the lamp further possibilities for expression and customisation. With minimal intervention from the designer and the craftsman, waste is reborn as Dunk- a playful, usable product.
Dunk is not designed to stay still in one place, but to travel through different rooms in the house or any other desired space, in a variety of situations and moods. On the corner table, in the book shelf, on the bed side table or a desk.
The project is an effort to move away from the back yard innovation image and tap into the good craftsmanship talent that India possesses.
Handcrafted in India by master artisans of a nearly two centuries old traditional craft.
