Cephalopod Lighting Fixtures

The Octopus Chandelier Measures 4 Feet Wide and Has 30-inch Tentacles

— January 6, 2014 — Art & Design
As far as atypical chandeliers go, this Octopus Chandelier has to be pretty high up on the greatest hits list. Mason Parker of Mason's Creations built this chandelier out of stained glass, and it measures 4 feet across. Each tentacle, if it were stretched out straight, would measure an incredible 30 inches. What makes the Octopus Chandelier awesome, apart from its look, is that it has three lighting modes.

You can light up the head, tentacles or both at the same time. The tentacles are also removable, should you be squeezed for space. This makes the Octopus Chandelier one of the most unique -- and creepiest -- mood lights out there. Parker sold his last Octopus Chandelier for a cool $18,000, but he plans on making another one soon.
Trend Themes
1. Unusual Chandeliers - There is an opportunity for designers to create more unique and customized lighting fixtures that serve both aesthetic and functional purposes.
2. Modular Lighting Fixtures - A trend towards modular and customizable lighting fixtures offers an opportunity for consumers to have a personalized lighting experience, building their ideal fixtures piece by piece.
3. Smart Lighting - With the emergence of smart and connected technologies, there is a growing trend towards lights with built-in AI that can be controlled remotely with a phone application.
Industry Implications
1. Lighting Designers - Designers could make highly unique light fixtures by incorporating unconventional designs, such as cephalopod-inspired chandeliers, that could become highly sought after pieces of art.
2. Home Decor and Lifestyle - This industry could be disrupted by futuristic and eclectic home lighting designs being produced by lighting designers.
3. Internet of Things (iot) - Considering the Octopus Chandelier has three lighting modes, it could be an indication of an emerging trend where designers are creating connected lighting systems that can be controlled separately via IoT devices.
