Made with industrial parts, the little $30 lamp looks like a mechanical Praying Mantis or a spider that's missing four of its legs. And it has the personality of a pet, as it comes in a box with breathing holes as well as a personalized ID postcard. An infestation of these quirky stripped-down lights is one you might welcome to your desk. [Animi Causa]
