Cirrata Lamp by Markus Johansson
Challenging common perceptions of what is possible to create out of the Corian material, Swedish designer Markus Johansson presents his Cirrata Lamp, named after the suborder containing octopi. The official description for Cirrata is as follows: “Unexpected experiences and surprises wait deep down on the ocean floor: a body with many arms which sweeps along and lights up the depth. Arrogant and presumptuous, there is no doubt about who is the ruler down here. A lonely but nevertheless unafraid character with forms born out of the resemblance to other inhabitants of the deep depths. Sometimes still, sometimes alive, all depending on occasion and company. The character is ‘Cirrata,’ a glowing lamp in the darkness of the ocean.” Further information into the works of Markus Johansson is offered here.
