Liquid Lamp by Kouichi Okamoto

The Liquid Lamp by Kouichi Okamoto mimics an overturned bucket pouring blood. The 'frozen' liquid creates an optical illusion, where the lampshade looks to have no stand. The Liquid Lamp is 12.5 inches high, 11.5 inches wide and 8.2 inches in depth, takes a single 25 watt bulb and is activated by an inline slider switch built into the electrical cord. You can order one for 19,950 yen (about $227) for white and 23,100 yen (about $262) for red. They are handmade one at a time which explains the high retail price.
