This lamp from design and style studio YOY requires the notion of a table lamp or floor lamp and whittles it down to its most fundamental of parts. The lamp itself is simple an unassuming baton or pillar when off. It looks a bit like a lamp that an individual has forgotten to screw a light bulb into.
But in the darker hours when the lamp is turned on, it is magically transformed into a functional light that tends to make its own shade. A hidden projector in the prime of the lamp sends a shade-shaped light onto the nearest wall, creating what looks like an intriguing transparent shade.
