The Confront Lamp is the latest work by designer Jonghoo Choi.

In fact, Choi's website are full of projects like these: short, almost trite descriptions are attached to strange objects with implications that easily outrun their explanation. For example, check out the Magic Fedora series and Waste Wrapping Ribbon below:
We're not sure what Jonghoo is up to exactly, but we like it.
