Less Lamp – The Only Lamp That You’re Actually Supposed To Break

less_lamp_hammer

By Chris Scott Barr

When a person buys a new lamp, the last thing they want is for it to get broken. Here’s an interesting twist, what if there was a lamp that you were supposed to break as soon as you take it out of the box? That’s exactly what the Less Lamp wants you to do.

When you unbox the Less Lamp, you’ll find that it’s the absolute worst excuse for a lighting fixture, as it’s basically just a solid black egg. The idea is that you’ll use the included pick to poke holes in it. Heck, you can even break off the bottom portion of the egg to let out more light. As you can imagine, nothing this artsy-sounding ever comes cheap. This particular lamp will set you back $800. That’s right, eight hundred smackeroos for a lamp that you’re going to break immediately.

    I like the concept, but not for $800

    Where do I apply to be a lamp designer?

    haha I like both comments above. I have to agree, it sounds like fun to design something from breaking it, but $800. And if you mess up and don't like your design, you can't (or I can't) just go out and buy another.
