This unique lamp by Malaysian designerJunji Kawabe is a little out of this world. Designed as a functional scale, the lamp gets brighter as items placed on it increase in weight.
The concept is actually called ''lamp=weight'' lamp and was exhibited at Tokyo Designers Week back in 2010. Not too shabby for a designer who began his career as an aerospace engineer in Japan.
The pictures below (and the one above) will give you a good indication of just how bright the lamp can get. Bananas? They give off medium-high light. A coffee cup? Not such great light. An encyclopedic tome? That lights up the room in no time!
