The idea for this project came from the realization that lamps are usually placed near a wall. The wall in question is a great (usually missed) opportunity for light diffusion. Following that, we can construct a lamp that in itself has no light diffuser, allowing for a construction that is reduced to essentials.
Inspiration came from antennae found in the science fiction universe, on space craft, ground facilities, or space stations. They are made of metallic materials, elongated, straight, sometimes with a light beacon near or on the top.
