Turning on Mr. P (aka: the One Man Shy Lamp) may cause a few giggles and perhaps a blush or two. Yes, that is his on/off switch. His head will illuminate under the repositionable shade, once you turn him on. It doesn’t take much to brighten up Mr. P’s day.
Determine what your lighting goals are: Direct or task lighting is focused in the space you are trying to work. Ambient or indirect lighting is used for ambiance and for overall lighting of a space.
Roly-Poly comes from designer Jung Jae Yup and is one of the most playful lamp design we’ve seen. The project is also known as “Zen”, probably because it takes a strong meditative state for one not to be provoked into playing with this lamp.
