This is a simple and unique lamp designed by Norm Architects. This lamp was inspired by an old hat block that used to shapes and makes hats. The hat block shaped like an ordinary lamp shades, makes it perfect as a lampshade itself. This is a great usage of classic thing for modern design. More description by Norm Architects:

For the Hat lamp, Norm Architects took their inspiration from the fascinating old moulds used to model hats. These moulds, veritable wooden sculptures, have now become highly sought-after objects for many collectors. For Kasper and Jonas (Norm Architects), they were, on the other hand, the perfect source of inspiration to create a lamp capable of combining essential features with a strong sculptural presence and a nostalgic flavour. Its dimensions make it perfect for any room in the home, alone or grouped to create clusters.
