Martian sunrise

Belgian designer Michaël Verheyden seems to have a bit of a thing about the mari and canali of Mars, if his Lucid 300 table lamp is anything to go by.  And he’s channelling it through Roman precedents too, forming the base out of an oxidised silvered brass and the shade of honed alabaster. Designed for CTO lighting and weighing in at a hefty 9kg, you might want to check that the table’s got the right reinforcements before you get this God of War to position itself at its head.
