Designed by Veneridesign Studio, this lamp tries to capture the awful beauty of a nuclear strike. The fluid details created using 3D-printing techniques, its like staring into a frozen mushroom cloud.
The sad part is I could model this or something better in Zbrush in less than 15 minutes; print it at shapeways.com in a hollow variety for under $200, and buy a $15 lamp to create something almost exactly the same in a little under 3 hours. [shipping time from shapeways excluded of course]
Le sigh... Art's nice, but sometimes people go overboard.
