Awkwardness in a Lamp

A little bit of embarrassment for your Thursday. Via Knstrct:

The Good Boy Lamp

Most of us look away when we stumble upon a dog going , but an English artist, who goes by “Whatshisname,” wants you to stare straight at it! He does, it takes him a month to construct each one of his Good Boy Lamps, less than 100 of them now exist worldwide. The designer says that the “Good Boy lamp was designed as an item of everyday use that makes user uncomfortable with every use.” Mission accomplished – the artist was originally commissioned to build the lamp to be featured in London’s the Art Below exhibition on London Underground Stations, but was actually banned by London Underground from appearing on the Bond Street station for being to offensive!
