The Good Puppy Table Lamp and the Good Boy Floor Lamp are designed by a Polish born artist who now lives and works in London and goes by the obscure moniker What's His Name.
The two dumping dog lamps, a Chihuahua and a Great Dane, are about as sophisticated looking as canines taking a crap can be. Both have On/Off switches shaped as dog turds that needs to be pressed, or in case of Good Boy lamp, stepped on.
Both lamps were supposed to be part of London’s the Art Below exhibition on London Underground stations. Even though organizers accepted the work, unfortunately London Underground banned it for being offensive.
He now creates them as made to order pieces in limited numbers.
Creating the lamp takes about one month.
