People get their inspiration from all sorts of different places. Personally, I look to the old woman outside who puts peanut butter on her lips and tries to talk to ducks. The Emotion Lab, out of Barcelona created the motorcycle lamp by drawing their inspiration from the streets.
Looking to the side mirrors used by hogs and street bikes alike, the motorcycle lamp can be attached to a wall, or even just laid on the ground or on a side table. Even if you aren’t a biker, having one won’t make you a poser.
