Consider lighting objects in general, and you'll realize what an opportunity the designer of the Shark Tail Floor Lamp took in its creation. Even the most basic floor lamp has been contrived to look the way it does; Ol'ha Shevchenko has simply chosen to make her product a fully fledged sculpture.

Emulating the anatomical shape of a large carnivorous fish, the designer molded just the back half, complete with the dorsal fin, the anal fin and the tail. Robust aluminum material produces an especially strong appearance, and its glossy blue finish makes it looks slick from the sea. A pedal on the floor lets the user turn the Shark Tail Floor Lamp off and on, illuminating bulbs that glow from in behind.
