Tako by Maurizio Capannesi

Maurizio Capannesi Exhibits The Tako Lamp

Maurizio Capannesi, the maker of the awarded project Lamp:Tako by Maurizio Capannesi spells out, 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 lunchbox. 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 polypropene lampshade is hidden behind the elastic band. Holes drilled on the base and top pieces allow the necessary airflow to avoid overheating..
