If someone offered you a Pizza Kobra, you’d probably wonder whether to salivate or run. As it turns out, the PizzaKobra is neither food nor reptile: it’s a very cool lamp that bends to your will.
The name comes from the fact that the lamp can look like a pizza, a cobra, and a score of other shapes. It’s a coil of soft metal that you can bend and manipulate to illuminate your space in unique ways. When it’s not lighting up your desk, it doubles as a beautiful and personal piece of art that is shaped by you.
This innovative lighting solution won Best of the Best in the 2008 Red Dot design awards, and for good reason. The design is approachable and fun, yet it looks pretty high-tech and awesome. You can’t help but play with it and move it around.
It appears that the PizzaKobra is not available in the US, but if you live in one of the 64 other countries where it is sold you may be able to mess around with this gadget in your own home. Visit the distributor’s website to see if there is a seller in your country.
