Less Lamp: Break Your Lamp the Minute You Get It

by Paul Strauss

Here’s a crazy idea for those of you with a sense of the absurd. How’d you like to spend about $800 on a handmade plaster lamp, only to crack it open with a pick axe as soon as you take it out of the box?

That’s exactly the value proposition you’ll get if you pick up artist Jordi Canudas’ Less Lamp. You see, this pendant lighting fixture looks like a solid black hanging egg when you first receive it, letting exactly none of the light out into your room. But thanks to the included pick, you can chip your way through the delicate exterior eggshell and let the light shine out to your own liking.

As a matter of fact, you can start small, cracking out a few tiny pinholes to let the light out. But when you get bored with that, get the pick out again, and really get to work. A tap here and a pick there, et voila – a bright wash of light emerges from the bottom of your once perfect – now cracked – egg.

If you’re into breaking some eggs to make omelets, you can head on over to the MoMA Store and order yours now.

    Well I could just make that at home, why would anyone pay $800 for that?

  3. Eli says:

    Hmm. Interesting idea, but $800 is possibly a bit overkill

    “If you’re into breaking some eggs to make omelets” more like omelights. heh.
