I don’t actually think much of the physical design of the smoon ombrella lamp. technabob describes it as “some sort of alien jellyfish… about to land its spacecraft in your living room”… a description far better than the actuality. And $2200 is just crazy talk. That said, the name is just so slithily brillig: it’s like a line from a lost stanza of The Hunting of the Snark.
