Becherlicht Lamp (Image courtesy designboom)
By Andrew Liszewski

When switched off, Martin Neuhaus’ Becherlicht lamp will leave you wondering why there’s an oddly mounted plastic cup near the wall. But when it’s turned on, you’ll understand its clever design. When properly positioned, the lamp projects a three-dimensional image of a colored lampshade on the wall, making it appear more like a traditional lamp with shade, as well as illuminating the room where it’s installed. It was created specifically for an exhibition at the imm cologne international furnishing show, and while it looks like a finished and sellable product, I don’t think it’s available for sale, or know if it will ever be.
