With an innovative vision, the Swedish designer Markus Johansson created a lamp which looks like an octopus. This lamp was made of polymer corian.Corian is a decorative surface, based on a high performance and a combination of aluminum and acrylic polymers. The strong point of this material is the fact that it can take almost any shape.

The octopus has eight tentacles with cups and is famous for its dark substance which disturbs the water that it eliminates when it is followed. Also, the octopuses are fishing for their meat which is very appreciated in gastronomy.This sea creature has also gave the name of this TV serial from 1984 called “ LA Piovra” where the Michele Placido plays the role of the well known police inspector, Corrado Cattani.This unique lamp, designed by Markus Johansson placed in a wonderful décor definitely will attract the appreciation of all the visitors of your house.
