Award Winning Tako Lamp

Maurizio Capannesi Spotlights The Tako Lamp

Maurizio Capannesi, the architect of the award winning project Award Winning Tako Lamp explicates, Tako (octopus in Japanese) is a table lamp inspired by the Spanish cuisine. The two bases remind the wooden plates where the “pulpo a la gallega” is served, while its shape and the elastic band evoke a bento, the traditional Japanese lunchbox. Its parts are assembled without screws, making it easy to put together. Being packed in pieces also reduces packaging and storing costs. The joint of the flexible polypropene lampshade is hidden behind the elastic band. Holes drilled on the base and top pieces allow the necessary airflow to avoid overheating..
