Fugu-Inspired Blowfish Lamp Creates Hypnotic Circles of Light by Andrea Carvajal
Andrea Carvajal's lamp was originally inspired by the image of a Fugu, the Japanese term for puffer fish. Carvajal took aesthetic cues from the unique fish to create a spiky, translucent lighting fixture that creates a series of hypnotic circles when illuminated. Although the design fulfills the traditional role of a lamp, the designer feels that it's better suited for decorative purposes than practical ones. Carvajal also envisions his design as the perfect focal point for public spaces such as a hotel lobby, or a design-conscious waiting room.
