There is something vaguely hedonistic, unruly and playful about these shiny gold figures by Daniel Loves Objects that double as light fixtures. These lamps are as much art as interior furniture – and more interactive than either typically is.


Having one of these simply would not suffice – their interactivity, either in proximity or at a distance, has huge potential for animating interior spaces and creating virtual, every-changing stories out of inanimate objects.


While we are unlikely to see these creative objects in real life they are at least lovely to consider – and the basis for an obvious question: what other everyday home object designs could be somehow anthropomorphized?
