I’ve always liked objects that make you stop in your tracks and ask “what the heck…?” This lamp certainly qualifies. It’s suspended from nothing at a jaunty angle, constantly a few tenths of a second from smashing into bits. My guess would be that it’s actually being held up by a hidden support in the cord, but for all I know it’s black magic. If you want one, it’s a limited edition from 2001 from Hopf & Wortmann, so good luck finding your own, but it’s an easy (albeit brief) DIY with a normal lamp and a fast camera.
