When Scott Franklin designed the Wet Lamp, he threw sense out the window; specifically the logic that water and electricity shouldn't play with each other. The glass bowl is filled with water, and electrified, which lights up the lightbulb submerged inside. The silver rod that charges the water acts as a dimmer switch: plunge the rod into the liquid to turn up the lights. Comes in 3 sizes, with an average of $250.
