Fish Lamps by Frank Gehry

Iconic Canadian-American architect and artist Frank Gehry created a gorgeous sculptural series of fish lamps using jagged scales of ColorCore formica mounted on wireframes.

“After accidentally shattering a piece of ColorCore while working on a commission for Formica, he decided to use the broken shards as fish scales by glueing them onto wire armatures.”
