Ultimate Desktop Aquarium ‘JellyTank’

The JellyTank by Florida-based designers Blake and Brock Gratton is a desktop jellyfish aquarium customized for homes, offices or commercial spaces. The goal is to create a tank focused on the natural flow that this marine species would typically experience in the oceans whilst offering a mesmerizing, slick and fully functional product. So for all the jellyfish lovers out there, Blake and Brock Gratton have made it surprisingly easier to own a bunch of them as pets in their state-of-the-art tank. Based on extensive research, the JellyTank is user-friendly and easy to maintain in different contexts. To keep the animal comfortable in this habitat, the design includes a laminar water flow pattern which mimics the natural currents and conditions of open water. During nighttime, colored LED lights set the mood by emphasizing the curvy outlines of the design as well as the translucent bodies of the invertebrates floating across the tank.

Aquariums Filled With 3D Printed Flora by Designer Haruka Misawa

Designer and founder of Misawa Design Institute, Haruka Misawa, has designed a series of minimal aquariums titled “Waterscapes” that include 3D printed objects inspired by undersea plant life. These works mimic coral and other aquatic flora that small fish use as hiding places, yet are all manufactured digitally. The objects are ones that would normal topple or crumble because of their own weight, yet because of their underwater location are able to exist as buoyant additions to the aesthetically pleasing fish homes. Within the series Misawa has also designed bubbles of air within the aquariums that allow plants to thrive at the center of her creations. These meta environments appear like miniature fish bowls within larger aquariums, with plants floating at the top of the inner enclosures. These works were displayed recently in Taiwan in an exhibition titled “Waterscape”.

Avo – Self-Cleaning Fish Tank by Susan Shelley

A young British designer Suzy Shelley has just launched the only fish tank that never needs cleaning, water changing or a new filter. 15-litre fish tank Avo is packed full of innovative technology, enabling fish, plants and bacteria work together to create a balanced micro-ecosystem. All you will ever need to do is top up the water and feed the fish. It’s so effective in fact, the prototype has been going strong for 18 months without a cleaning and still has healthy fish, plants and clear water! Avo also features automated LED lighting specifically optimised for plant photosynthesis and growth, which promotes clear and healthy water. Avo’s unique lighting has the added aesthetic benefit of producing soft red light in the morning, fading to daylight white, to cool blue in the evening. Suzy has just launched a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds to manufacture Avo.

Creative Fish Lamps by Frank Gehry

Frank Gehry is one of America’s best known architects. His award winning designs can be found around the world and have gained him the honor of being called the most significant American architect of our generation. Frank Gehry has a another passion, Fish. Over 25 years ago when Frank was working on a project for Formica, he shattered a sheet of ColorCore laminate. Instead of fretting over the damage, Frank’s creative mind kicked into high gear seeing the shards of colorful plastic as fish scales. Soon he had created a series of Fish Lamps by using metal framework and the ColorCore shards that are treasured works of art traveling from museum to museum. Recently, the 80+ year old architect created a new series of Fish Lamps, once again using ColorCore from Formica. Take a look at his new pieces.
