Lamp pretends to be bucket of blood, is awesome...

The liquid lamp by Kouichi Okamoto is as beautiful as it is fun to look at.  The illusion it creates and vector-esque lines make it quite an unusual lighting piece.  Comes in white and red and costs USD$199 and you can buy it here.

Although these are built with the pure intention of displaying them as works of art, apparently they are completely functional and can be ridden. Thus he likes to refer to them as “traveling art”. How resourcefully  pretentious. His day job is a custom bike builder, a really good one in fact, he won the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building in 2006.
