Horse Lamp deserves its due. We simply couldn’t go on with our Conversation Piece series without discussing Horse Lamp. A life-sized equine floor lamp by the Swedish design group Front, Horse Lamp makes us question everything we know about the lamp as an object—thanks to its impressive scale.
Produced by Moooi, Horse Lamp is not for the timid. Front describes it this way: “Furniture to fall in love with at first sight, or hate forever,” and that attitude is one thing I love about the woman-led studio. Front is not trying to please the masses—nor is Horse Lamp.
If you want your furniture to do what furniture regularly does, which is to say provide places to sit or store or illuminate, then Horse Lamp simply won’t do. It is, instead, for people who want their spaces to challenge the routine of daily life. Horse Lamp seems like a magical creature trotted in from a Bavarian forest. It reminds us that the fantastic surrounds us—that life is full of unusual splendors.
