Designed by Ettore Cimini, the Ra features two fully adjustable steel and technopolymer arms that separately deliver and focus light from a 100W fluorescent bulb from the tip of their snake-like head using fiber optic cable. The light itself can be adjusted to taste via a built-in dimmer control.

On the downside, it appears that the lamps are custom made to order—which surely means that it is far, far out of most of our price ranges. [Lumina via e-potpourri via TFTS]
