The Good Boy Lamp // Whatshisname
I absolutely adore this Good Boy Lamp by British artist Whatshisname, designed as an item of everyday use that makes the user uncomfortable with every use.
The On/Off switch is shaped as a turd that needs to be stepped on. The puppy is in its natural pose, looking around with a bit of surprise on her face.
Both lamps were supposed to be part of London’s the Art Below exhibition on London Underground stations. Unfortunately they were banned by London Underground due to being offensive.
Creating the lamp takes about one month and will cost £2500 (+vat). Good Boy is available in limited editions of 100 worldwide. Contact artist for purchase.
