I really love these 2D designs. You can stick your lamp anywhere you want. You are no longer restricted by the traditional delimma of sticking it on a table or the floor.
Studio Italia Design’s dramatic Blow Table Lamp is really a sight to behold. The lighting fixture’s centerpiece is a small adjustable 12V lighting head encased inside a blown glass bubble. The light’s direction can be adjusted using a magnet that sits on the outside of its clear glass globe.
Here’s the coolest lighting I’ve seen in quite a while. It’s called FlapFlap and comes from hopf & wortmann in Germany. Pretty cool, or what do you think? On their site you can read that it’s a limited edition product from 2001, so you probably have to go to eBay or something if you want one.
If you’ve been spending too much time hunting for that book you were reading, then you might like the clear reading lamp by Bureaudebank of The Netherlands. There is also a frosted version.
