If you're one of those people who love a good ironic product (like this office-supply inspired bag we had our eyes on last April), there's a good chance you'd be able to find a place for a shark fin lamp in your home or office.
The Shark Lamp in its natural environment
Sanding the perfect fin
It might seem like a long shot, comparing the fear of impending doom that comes with a single shark fin in murky water to a dark room, but Ukranian-based designer Aleksandr Mukomelov does it:
A close view of a shark fin subconsciously causes a sensation of risk and adrenaline discharge. Appearing in the ocean, it instantly scares away all the flesh around it. But 'Shark lamp scares away only the surrounding darkness, for what it is actually designed.
