Wile E. Coyote never had much luck with the ACME Corporation's seemingly infinite supply of wacky wares; poor guy couldn't catch a break. If you are and always have been on Team Road Runner, these Firecracker Lamps are like a cheery, fully-functional update on this ol' classic clunker.

Siberian designer Vladimir Ivanov was clearly having a good time when he came up with this concept, which he showed last month during design week in Milan. I mean, these aren't just your average table lamp—from the looks of the pic below, you could literally strap a human child to that thing!

Which you wouldn't do, obviously, but I could see these being a hit in a seriously Looney-Tunes-loving household.


I reached out to Ivanov about availability but haven't heard back, so I'm not sure if these are just prototypes or actually available for purchase, but either way they're jolly and I like 'em. [Domus]
