personifying a small table light, south korean design studio rising has created ‘lamp identity’. the animated structure consists of a white lamp shade, which is connected to two pieces that look like tiny legs. the thin components enable the light to literally stand up on a table and can also be moved into a friendly walking position. the illuminated object can be placed onto a desk, as if pausing in the middle of its journey.

  • Problem of this product is the price. It’s too pricy. It costs about $70-80 regardless of it’s size and functionality.
    Similar products from IKEA usually cost about 1/4 price of this product.
    It’s cute and a tiny little decoration for your room but I strongly doubt that this product may become popular.
