This is the conceptural lamp. It is the lamp that can't light up. An example of dysfunctional design – a mistake.
The lamp looks like a solid piece of wood with a wire coming out of it. When switched on, nothing happens. The solution to the problem is to simply to cut off a piece of the scultpure. To acquire its function, the art piece has to be destroyed.
Lamp - with or without function is part of Art with function – Design without."
