You arrive home after work, throw your hat on this stand and SHAZAM! You've got yourself a fun little light. Now, not many of us wear these Clark Kenters these days but the idea is great and one that TreeHugger would like to see more examples of. Got any? Essentially, the hat performs 2 functions so that the total amount of materials (lamp+hat) is lessened. Along the lines of making the basket function of grocery carts separate from the cart function (see john's hybrid design post).

use of materials.
