Tom Foulsham is an English designer who has created this odd one-off lamp called 'Big Bird.' 'Big Bird' is a lamp that somehow manages to stay balanced despite its considerable length, and the fact that its base is a tiny metal sliver.

I wouldn't exactly kill to have 'Big Bird' as my own personal reading lamp, but it is still a cool and quirky design nonetheless.
