Mokusei lamp by Tortoise:



This light shade is actually a puzzle. Or the puzzle is actually a light shade. It consists of 20 pieces of triangle shaped cherry wood veneer. You can use all the pieces to make a ball-like shade or only some of them to create different shapes(the shade pictured above uses only 10 of the pieces). The shade is named Mokusei, the word for the planet Jupiter in Japanese, because the pattern on its surface is similar to that of the 5th planet. Very clever and it looks good, too.
