A portmanteau of the words Paddy and Buddy, the Puddy lamp takes on the character of a rice farmer in Southeast Asia. The 3D printed lamp’s minimal design sports a body, an adjustable head, and a lampshade that looks a lot like the conical hats worn by the rice farmers!

Puddy makes up for its minimal design with an incredibly interactive experience and an expressive design that reminds one of Pixar’s own Luxo Jr. Modeled to look quite like a tiny little human in a robe and a hat, Puddy makes for a great addition to any work surface. The little lamp is designed to be entirely wireless, and can be carried around with you, conveniently parking wherever you want it to. The bright little chap (no pun intended) comes with an adjustable head that lets you face it (I did it again) upwards, while the lampshade helps guide the light based on its angle. For brighter light, just make Puddy look up, and for more ambient lighting, face Puddy downwards so the lampshade cuts out any direct light.

While Puddy’s aesthetic is a combination of traditional and modern, its production is too. The lamp comes entirely 3D printed out of a 6:4 composite of PLA and recycled wood particles. The lamp’s light-source is encased in an all-PLA component (for translucency and diffusion), while the shade, body, and the ball-socket joint are all printed in the PLA+Wood composite. This unique choice of material lends a nice, sandy finish to the lamp’s design and even makes it smell like wood! It also ensures that the lamp is entirely biodegradable (PLA is plant-based too).

Each Puddy comes in one of four colors derived from the four different types of wood used in the lamp’s design – Birch, Ebony, Pine, and Willow. The cordless lamp runs a 3000K warm white LED on the inside, with a 2500mAh battery that gives it up to 7 hours of use on its brightest setting. The lamp sports a single on/off switch that even has a long-press dimming feature, and right below it is Puddy’s MicroUSB charging port.

Puddy’s beautiful eclectic design combines minimalism with an expressive character, and with Asian traditionalism to make a lamp that’s fun, interactive, and meaningful. Its 3D printed design puts it in the same category as other beautifully minimal table lamps from Gantri and the like, while Puddy’s cordless design really uplifts it into a helpful little buddy who will go wherever you go! The Puddy ships fully assembled for $169 and comes with a 1-year warranty that allows parts to be repaired/replaced if the need ever arises.
