Cirrata table light by Markus Johansson

Cirrata table light by Markus JohanssonAt first glance, Cirrata, from the Swedish designer, Markus Johansson, looks like another example of a light made using rapid-prototyping technology, a trend started by MGX by Materialise and then Freedom of Creation and now, as will be seen by clicking on the tag "Rapid Prototyping", now being enthusiastically pursued by others. It certainly echoes the sense of a design drawn from nature.

In Markus's own words, "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."

And, kudos to him (as they say in American dialect) for not airbrushing out the electrical flex!
