When you think about tongs, you think about BBQ and kitchen utensils. However, Tokyo based designer Takashi Sato has come up with a lamp that holds a bulb in place using a tong-like structure.

Sato says that the lamps are inspired by the tongs, the kitchen tool. The aluminum Tongs lamp possesses a slot in the shade to insert a bulb. The lamp looks like it's made out of one piece of metal, which is quite ingenious.
