6 Uber-Cool Desk Lamps for that Ultimate Accessory

To some, modern desk lamps may be little more than a basic utilitarian accessory used for completing work late into the night without eyestrain, but today’s roundup of uber-cool desk lamps is nothing short of inspired.  While one is made from 40 pairs of aviator sunglasses, another replicates the headlight and handlebars of a sky blue Vespa, and yet another emulates (not to mention illuminates) an oversized resin version of the Control and Shift keys on a personal computer.  Although desk work might often be a bit mundane, these six lamps liven — and lighten — things up with a generous sense of humor and invention.

How about this throw back of a vespa inspired design.  This reminds me of something very eclectic that I would see in a collector’s home.  This would be  fun piece to gift to a loved one such as an uncle.
