This Wall Lamp Design Was Inspired By Italian Men Watching Work Being Done On A Building Site
During Euroluce 2019, Italian lighting company KARMAN, released Umarell, a fun wall lamp that was inspired by a familiar sight in Bologna, a man watching work being done on a building site.
Designed by Giorgio Biscaro, the lamp is a typical wall ‘cube’ with an unglazed ceramic finish and decorative front plate. However, the part of the light that draws the most attention, is a little man that looks down into the light, as if peering into the workings of the light, much like watching a building site.
Another version of the light has the little man sitting on the edge of ‘cube’, just like sitting on a bench.
