A light fixture used to be recognizable as such, but a product like the Poop Lamp by Diana Dumitrescu demonstrates how times and design have changed. Not only does this practical interior device take an abstract form with no visible lightbulb, it actually replicates the look of excrement.
Happily, the bizarre object is manufactured in a range of very unrealistic colors including orange, yellow and purple. The shape itself is a stylized into a more simplified and cartoony form that makes it appear as though it's been squeezed out in a perfect spiral.
Attached to the Poop Lamp is a USB cable that allows you to hook it up to your computer to charge. It's packaged in a vibrant matching can that was likely inspired by Piero Manzoni's 'Artist's Shit.'
