Bonus Bone: Ray, the Table Lamp

Do you know what this is?
An inventive sun glasses display at Walgreen's?

Nope, it's a lamp! Not only does it embody a tabletop disco (feast on those shadows!) but, from what I can tell, it's made entirely from sun glasses on a metal stand. Even the ON switch appears to be part of a pair of sun specs.

I say "appears" because the English translation from the Dutch description doesn't focus on the materials used. Instead, Element endearingly informs us that this lamp (named Ray) uses "sun glasses differently at once." Indeed!

For these reasons, I, Cardboard, declare this a Design Boner.

That's way cool looking, but as you said, it looks a little Walgreens display. I wouldn't know where a designsavvy person could put that and make it gel in a room.
