Alex Randall's Rat Lamp

The craziest light fixture I saw was Alex Randall's lamp made from real taxidermized rats, at Future Perfect. Bonnie wrote about Randall:

"Taxidermy, the Victorian art and tradition of stuffing animals, is becoming fashionable again. Only this time round with young artists who see it as an ethical design choice. If the animal is already dead, why not preserve it in a new and cutting edge way."
