Jean-Louis Domecq designed the first of these magnificent lamps in 1950, because he wasn't able to find a practical workinglamp. Well, good for us! 57 years later it's still one of the coolest cats in the world of lamps. It now comes in a whole range of colours and sizes. The price is insane for a student like moi, but a student need good worklight, right?
The picture is borrowed from Jielde'. look. drool.
