The Orca Lamp / Puff Buff / illustrated by Anna Niemierko

The Orca Lamp makes use of the DIY idea in an interesting new way. Its simple construction, consisting of a stainless steel base and a plastic shade, demands from the user unusual involvement in its set-up. Made from flexible PCW, it is necessary for the user to inflate the lampshade until it begins to resemble a beach toy in the shape of a killer whale. Each lamp comes with a first aid kit in the form of glue and patches, in case of punctures.

The Puff Buff brand was founded in 2004 by Anna Siedlecka and Radek Achramowicz. Since the beginning of their quest, they have focused on using air in lighting arrangements. These two designers are inspired by experiments in art and design in the 1950s and 60s.
