I couldn't help but wonder why the Cau Table Lamp had a thick cord hanging off of it. At first I thought it was simply a quirky detail, but as I continued to click through the gallery, I realized that it was attached to the actual light source.

Designed by Marti Guize, the Cau Table Lamp is actually a facade. Yes, it does provide light, but not in the way it pretends to. The "lamp" simply acts as an "avatar" of sorts, while light is actually emitted from the attached worker's light. Stats for Unexpected Work Lighting Trending: Older & Chilly
