Cod Fish Lamps: Insert Sea/See Pun Here

by Lambert Varias

We’ve featured more than a hundred different versions of lamps on our blog, but I’m fairly certain this is the first one I’ve seen that uses a dead animal. Called Uggi Lights (Uggi is Icelandic for “fish fin”), each lamp is made from the skin of cod fish.

Each lamp is handmade by Fanney Antonsdóttir and Dögg Guðmundsdóttir, who were inspired by the Icelandic tradition of drying fish, which is done by sticking bulbs inside the creatures. Just kidding. The two designers skin cod fish and let them dry on molds, and after 3 weeks the lamps are ready to freak people out. Although they would be right at home in a seafood restaurant or island resort.

The Uggi Lights have been seen in exhibitions worldwide, although Antonsdóttir and Guðmundsdóttir have only sold a few of these lamps. If you’d like to have one of these rare creations, prepare €670 (~$880 USD) and send them an email. If it wasn’t so wrong, I’d like to have a bearskin lamp. Or one of these.
