It may be ugly, but you can’t deny that a wiener dog with an illuminated torso is pretty damn funny. You can have it from here for $50.
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.
Another trait that adds into the mystery of this unique light is the way it controls the illumination. It is the tap that doubles up as the dimmer in this case. Just turn it around and you can control the effects. Must say this will indeed be a unique addition in your home decor.
In areas where ambiance is wanted along with task lighting, add a dimmer onto your pendant lights for versatility of controlling the light output.
