Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design Tako Lamp by Maurizio Capannesi 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.
