A' Design Award and Competitions are delighted to share that the project Tako by Maurizio Capannesi has been acknowledged with the famed Golden A' Design Award at Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design Category, selected as one of the winners by the respected jurors of the A' Design Award & Competition among a great number of submissions.

Winner Design: Tako
Tako 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 polypropylene lampshade is hidden behind the elastic band. Holes drilled on the base and top pieces allow the necessary airflow to avoid overheating.
