Lamp!

This lamp has been bouncing around my head for a few weeks.  I sourced textile electrical cable from Sweden, by way of a German eBay reseller (if anyone knows a U.S. source, please hit me up on the contact page), and the rest of the parts are standard hardware store stuff.  The main body is the leg of an Ikea LACK side-table.  Very happy with how this came out.

Further plans include wall and ceiling mounts via rare-earth magnets.  Higher-res pics in the design section.  :D

UPDATE: Hello new visitors.  I've had so much interest from the posts on Materialicious and Design Milk (thanks!) that I've decided to offer a limited-run series of twenty-five pieces.  They will be the same color combination as shown here, with an 8ft. cable, for USD $225.  If you're interested, get in touch.

FURTHER UPDATE: Lamp! is now available on our Etsy shop, at a lower price than the first run pieces.  Buy one, why don't you.

How is it able to stand up being just one leg?
