Breaking the bad taste barrier

In the middle of this evening's Ikea research trip, I pointed at a lamp and asked. "Okay, so tell me: is that outrageously ugly or cutting-edge ahead-of-the-curve design?"

"Outrageously ugly --- "

"Thank you. I thought I was the only one who thought so."

" --- Actually, it looks like the opening show at the Biennale last year. Especially the bigger one." And my friend pointed at this version of the lamp in question:

Outrageously ugly

Obviously, my friend shall not be named, or he'll never work in this town again.

I'm not sure if it's your photo, but it really doesn't seem ugly to me.

I was just at Ikea tonight and saw that lamp too. I think my comment was, "look at that piece of crap! Wow, it's 200 dollars!"
