Pumpal

While we're all about the best design for kids, we also love products for grown-ups that are inspired by childhood and play. The Pumpal Lamp by British designer Ewan Cashman is just that. Sleek and sophisticated, the tall lamp resembles an oversized spinning top (and even takes it's name from the Bulgarian word for the ubiquitous toy). Cashman envisions this concrete and wood fixture as the perfect light for the family home, rotating 360 degrees to throw light wherever it's most needed. Cashmere says of his work, "I wanted to create an object of playful engagement as well as practicality. I like the idea of taking the form of a toy that we all understand and recognise, and seeing what practical purposes can be discovered from it." Visit Cashman's website to learn more about his work.
