The original robot design is the Osqar table lamp by Ygnacio Baranga from the late 1980s. It was only produced a few years in the 90s. This lamp is clearly a shameless copy.
The most striking difference is that this lamp has a complete different base and no dimmer. The original base is a conical square base with a built-in fuse and dimmer. You can find the original lamp over here, with it’s complete history.
