Inspired by the 1950s-era Paris A.E. Cremer studio and spotlights, the lamp sits on a polished stainless steel stand and vaguely resembles what that jittery Pixar lamp would look like after a growth spurt and the lamp equivalent of puberty. It's mostly unrecognizable from its life on the tarmac as well, as it's been polished and heated down to create a patina of glowing blues, golds, and purples.
