Tako (Lamp) by Maurizio Capannesi
2012 - 2013, Golden A' Lighting Design Award Winner
Inspiration
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 lunch box.
Creativity
Tako is a table lamp. 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 polypropylene lampshade is hidden behind the elastic band. Holes drilled on the base and top pieces allow the necessary airflow to avoid overheating. Wiring, elastic band and lampshade all sit into groves made on the wooden pieces.
Design Challenges
Maurizio Capannesi did not encounter any design challenges while designing the award winning Tako Lamp.
