Paperclip Lamp – An Icon That Microsoft Tried to Kill

Ha, I kid.  We Windows users loooove that freaking little paperclip, don’t we…

David Wykes and Benoît Colette have produced the Paperclip Lamp – a design that takes the ol’ humble paperclip and turns it into something we don’t rush to click off with our mouse whenever we open Microsoft products.  The Paperclip Lamp is LED sourced, and works on the concept that people like me pick up paperclips and bent the bejeebus out of them without thinking.

Well, that might be stretching the truth a bit – about the concept part.  It’s totally true about every time I pick up a paperclip I mangle it into something otherworldly.
