The black Hadron Lamp is so electrifying that a jellyfish looking for a date might easily be fooled. The brainchild of designer Joe Doucet, the floor lamp is a translucent membrane filled with thin electroluminescent wire. The young NYC-based designer, who currently holds more than 40 patents for his designs and inventions, presented the Hadron during New York Design Week.

The Hadron Lamp contains 20 meters of EL wire which magically appears through the translucent black glass and emits a soft, deep-sea kind of glow. “It’s often said that a little chaos can lighten up any situation. We like the sentiment so much we decided it needed to come alive,” said Doucet.

The designer debuted the Hadron Light Lamp during his Play exhibition at Wanted Design this month in New York.

    I did something very similar, but I wasn't happy with how little light EL emits, so I used an LED light rope. It's now my stairwell chandelier.
