Based on the classic Fibonacci sequence, where each number in the sequence (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13...) is the sum of the previous two, this Fibonacci Lampshade ($70) graces any space with charm. When the Fibonacci sequence is plotted graphically, it results in an outward-winding spiral pattern that commonly occurs in nature , i.e. in the cross-section of a nautilus shell. Why is this important? The lampshade is formed in the Fibonacci spiral, allowing light to flow through it in a beautifully organic, calming, almost mathematical fashion. We feel smarter just having it next to our desks.
