Sure, you can roll old school with a Waterford chandelier slung from the ceiling. Better yet, why not fantasize about ancient mathematical screws with the help of this, the "Archimedes Dream" from designer Makoto Tojiki. The glowing ribbon of pale blue (or pink) light is constructed from our favorite kind of LEDs -- OLEDs. Better yet, if you look closely, you'll find an approximation of Archimedes' constant, Pi, gently swirling methodically into exhaustion. Designed for ceiling suspension or for use as a floor lamp. Eureka!
