The Liquid Lamp Oozes Drama and Creativity

Fans of Twilight will be delighted to see these disturbing designs by Caina's The Design Shop. Based in Japan, The Design Shop produces these blood lamps to have a doubly dramatic effect: they appear to be bleeding, and they appear to be floating. 

If blood isn't your cup of tea, you can opt for the white version which looks like milk running down the lampshade; somehow the white version is not as interesting.

Implications - Consumers appreciate products with unique designs because they feel more effort was put into the manufacturing of the item, which in turn means it's intrinsically and financially more valuable. Corporations trying to raise the prices of their products may justify doing so by implementing idiosyncratic designs for that product.
