Resembling an octopus, the Markus Johansson Ciratta Lamp brings the water dwelling creature onto land. Although the lamp stands on its feet, it looks fresh out of the water and as if it's floating through the air.

According to designboom.com, the lamp was "named after the suborder containing octopi." Made with corian, a material that is formed by heat and creates its shape through wooden bases, the Markus Johansson Ciratta Lamp is enigmatic in both its shape and construction.

The artist describes his piece "as a glowing lamp in the darkness" where "unexpected experiences and surprises wait deep down on the ocean floor."

With a gorgeous shape and functionality to light up a space, the Markus Johansson Ciratta Lamp is artwork at its best.
