Normal product designs are no longer enough to sate consumer demand for individuality, but something tells me this ‘Good Boy’ lamp doesn’t have a problem convincing users of its uniqueness. After all, it’s not a regular occurrence to see a lamp shaped like a dog defecating on the floor. Courtesy of UK artist Whatshisname, the ‘Good Boy’ lamp was designed, as explained on his blog, “as an item of everyday use that makes user uncomfortable with every use.” It’s safe to say that Whatshisname achieved his goal in spades.

The ‘Good Boy’ lamp also has a smaller Chihuahua companion titled the ‘Good Puppy.’ Both illuminators were initially to be a part of London’s the Art Below exhibition, though they’ve since been banned after being deemed too offensive. Still, fans of the lamps may see them in person by purchasing one of 100 limited edition copies sold through Whatshisname’s website.
