Here's a clever way to rid your home of unsightly cables: just hide them in plain sight.

And for those who don't need the six-foot version which will no doubt be prohibitively expensive given they're each made to order, a 16-inch, self-standing mini version of the HB Lamp can also be ordered and perched on your desk, or thrown inside a monstrous pencil case if you find your university lecture halls just too dark.
