I spotted these awesome lamps yesterday and i had to post them because I really love them. They are designed by Brit "Whatshisname" and it takes him a month to make each and every one. Originally commissioned to build a design for London's "The Art Below" Exhibition, where art is shown in various London underground stations, this one was banned by London Underground's Bond Street station for being "Too Offensive" - What a joke.

The artist's mission was to take something that is used in everyday life and make the user uncomfortable with every use of it, and it seems he succeeded. The on/off switch is the big pile of dog shit, designed to be stepped on - very unnatural! 

Limited to 100 piece worldwide they are priced at £2500 (+ VAT)
