Although the Who is Watching You lamp may look like a microscope to some, it was inspired by the common security camera. Either way, the title applies. Whether a person feels like they are under inspection in the lab or on the street, this light fixture plays on people's paranoia in a very stylish and practical manner. It can be placed on a table or hung on a wall.

Nevertheless, the Slovakia-based design studio ALLT, which is run by Peter Simonik and Elena Bolcekova, explores a much more conspiratorial approach to the creation of the Who is Watching You lamp. As stated on their website, "The conflict between systematic solution of urban criminality and breach into privacy leads to contemplation about the power of unlimited data recording."
