Most of us prefer to tuck cords and cables well out of sight—in fact, I've arranged half of the furniture in my apartment in order to hiding my eyesore of a Wi-fi router. It's safe to say Tel Aviv-based designer Shahar Katsav is pushing for the opposite with his Table Lamp. The bright orange cords emerge from a soldering board and culminate in a head of incandescent bulbs that comes together to resemble a new-age Pixar character.
With its sinewy base and compound-eye light source, it's not for everyone, that's for sure. But it's not a stretch to envision this in a work studio or computer lab of some sort—or camouflaged among stray wires on a weathered workbench in the garage.
What do you think, work lamp lovers—yay or nay? You can check out more work from Katsav on Coroflot.
