Studio Dillon managing director Jane Dillon aims to combine extreme safety with a toy-like quality in this new animal lights range, due to launch early next month. ‘The lamps are very figurative because I hope children will come to treat them almost as a toy. But this could also be very dangerous if, for example, they decide to take it to bed with them,’ says Dillon. Safety features for the lamps include a low volume transformer and an inner protective shade, and the lamps conform to British and European safety standards. A low voltage halogen light keeps the lighting calm and helps children go to sleep, says Dillon.
