ZOOlamps come in 5 varieties: Pettirosso Erithacus rubecula, Pesce palla faraona Arothron meleagris, Pesce palla liscio Sphoeroides pachygaster, Pinguino reale Aptenodytes patagonica, Pipistrello Amazona autumnalis, or more simply: a parrot, a blowfish, a blunthead pufferfish, a penguin and a bat. Each can be placed upright or upside down, which is particularly effective for the bat-shaped lamp. You can even hang several ZOOlamps [1] in a cluster or on a chandelier [2] for an even more dramatic result.

While they might at first look akin to the regular bulbs you might see at Home Depot, upon further inspection it’s clear that Zoolamps [1]are actually individual works of art. Each one is blown from world-renowned Murano glass [3], meaning that just like real animals in the wild, no two are exactly identical.
