Custom Alien Lamp Would Make Me Hesitate To Turn Off The Lights

By David Wharton | 9 years ago

I don’t ask for much out of my lamps. Standing upright without falling over. Matching the room’s décor. Being easily dust-able. Providing light of some sort, obviously. One factor I’ve never considered, however, is whether or not the lamp is likely to scare the piss out of me after I fumble it on in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. So while I am blown away by this stunning, custom-made Alien lamp, I’m not sure whether I’d want it sitting next to me while I sleep. I keep envisioning this Twilight Zone scenario where every time I walk back into the room I could swear they’ve justbarely moved…

The lamp was created by Evil Robot Designs, and is dubbed “Alien Nation,” which leads me to wonder what they’d do if I had them build me a lamp based on, you know, Alien Nation. The lamp was built as a specific commission, so you won’t be able to get your hands on one without actually commissioning them to make another one. If you have to ask how much that would cost, you probably can’t afford it. Either way, nice work, ERD guys, although I do have to subtract a few points for your misspelling of “xenomorphs” in the product description.
