Blatella Luminaire

I have a friend who is incurably afraid of spiders. When he cat-sits for me, I place discrete plastic arachnoids around my place, imagining his surprised squeal when one is uncovered. The luminaire below is beautiful on its own merit, but has the added bonus of invoking the creepy-crawlies on suggestible skin.

Via Future Factories

“Blattella explores the beauty of insect forms; creatures invoking an instinctive repulsion and disgust. In spite of our discomfort they remain fascinating, we cannot avert our gaze from their curious articulated movements.”
