I really like styrofoam as a material, well actually it is Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Foam. This lamp called Flake was designed by Anne Boenisch.
This lamp is part of the DMY Asia Exhibition Tour 2008. So if you are in Taiwan, Taipei, Tokyo or Seoul in the coming weeks, you should go and see the work of 18 Berlin based designers.
