Tokujin Yoshioka's tear drop lamp

Photo: Tokujin Yoshioka Check out this beautiful, glass-and-aluminum tear drop pendant lamp by famed furniture designer Tokujin Yoshioka. Yoshioka got his start as an apprentice to Issey Miyake; his work can now be seen in places like the MoMa and the MUJI store. Same guy who made the natural crystal chair that I posted on Boing Boing last fall. The lamp's not for sale, but it'll be on display at the Milan Design Week later this month. [via Designboom]

    yeah… the Japanese need to take fewer mechanical engineering classes and more geometry classes!

    I’m not paying more than $19.99 for a Tap Light. And you have to throw in a Sham-Wow if I call in the next 13 minutes.

    …Teardrop? Look a bit circular rather than teardrop-shaped.
