As much as we may find a cathartic release by watching violent movies, plays and other performances, the Strangle Poise Lamp shows that sometimes we require more than simply observing these acts. Sometimes we desire need to physically take out our aggression physically and that is just what this light fixture allows us to do.

Designed by James Chambers for the Museum of Modern Art show 'Talk to Me: Design and the Communication Between People and Objects,' the Strangle Poise Lamp needs to be "hurt" in order to be turned off. Inspired by the classic British desk lamp designed by George Carwardine, which was designed in the 1930s, the Strangle Poise Lamp is simple and effective.
