It’s the lawsuit-avoiding tech of unlicensed merchandise. Clearly reminiscent of the mushrooms floating around in Nintendo’s famous Mario Bros. This lamp is available at $12 from here.
This amazing lamp was achieved by cutting up an old fashioned table lamp and inserting more than 40 perspex plates in between the slices. The designers from Studio Mango (The Netherlands) wanted to make ordinary perspex more posh. Well, they not only succeeded but they also managed to update what was an old lamp and made it more modern looking.
These fixtures are subtle and can be directional, and can be connected to dimmer switches to give a range of light from subtly dim to full brightness to illuminate an entire room.
Turning on Mr. P (aka: the One Man Shy Lamp) may cause a few giggles and perhaps a blush or two. Yes, that is his on/off switch. His head will illuminate under the repositionable shade, once you turn him on. It doesn’t take much to brighten up Mr. P’s day.
