File this under coolest desk lights of all time. Japanese designer Yukio Takano of The Great Mushrooming builds these fun lights using LEDs embedded in synthetic mushrooms that at a quick glance are passable for the real thing. Each light kit is complete with beautiful packaging, battery packs embedded in the base of the wood, and nifty retro on/off switches. While I can’t figure out if these are for sale online you can see tons more in his online gallery. (via fishy inspires, and thnx hiroyoshi!)
