This Fish Is Actually A Lamp Made From Wood Veneer

LZF Lamps have created Koi, a large wood veneer light shaped to look like the fish with the same name, that will be launched as part of their new Life-Size Collection at Euroluce in Milan later this week.

The piece was based on a Koi character from a film by creative studio Inocuo The Sign,  after they themselves were inspired by a translucent scale fabric LZF were working on. After the film was presented in 2011, LZF began working on a ‘real life’ Koi. You can see the film – here
