Dunk


Dunk is a warm and friendly fantasy creature in the form of an upcycled bottle lamp, featuring the wood and lac turnery craft of Channapatna in Karnataka, India. It is inspired by the idea of finding beauty & joy in simple objects of daily use. Dunk was recently awarded Red Dot Design Award, Best of the Best, 2014, in Singapore.

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 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.

Naturally elegant in green, sharp and refined in black, warm and reassuring in yellow, bright and exuberant in red and orange, these five shades allow for everyone to choose their ideal dunk.
