Buddy Desk Lamp
As Joes who spend the majority of their time confined to their desks churning out the best written material on the blogosphere, we’re always on the lookout for ways to improve our working area. Which is why we like the look of this humble desk lamp named Buddy.
The little things can make a big difference, particularly when you’re in your place of work and we believe a simple a beautiful piece of design can go a long way. The creative Buddy Desk Lamp combines two necessities that many Joes need while getting their work done; light and storage.
Buddy is essential a long thin lamp that’s balanced by a storage cup for pens, stationary or even a plant. It’s not the most futuristic or ground-breaking of concepts but it’s perfectly weighted and we love a simple bit of design that oozes Scandinavian elegance. Buddy does that in abundance.
It was designed by Mads Saetter-Lassen, a product designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. With an honest approach to design, he focuses on the simplicity and functionality of the product, although he is not afraid of decoration as long as it complements the functionality.
Buddy’s design has clearly impressed those in the know too as it won the Northern Lighting’s student design award and will launch later this month at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, as well as the Maison & Object Show in Paris.
The Buddy Desk Lamp isn’t being sold until it’s had its official launch and done the design show rounds but keep an eye on the Mads Saetter-Lassen Website for more details.
