Though you wouldn't immediately think of jellyfish when you think of lamps, it makes much more sense when you remember that some species of jellyfish can produce light in their bodies, known as bioluminescence. The Medusae Collection by Californian designer Roxy Russell highlights this fact with its gorgeous creations.

"Jellyfish are perhaps the best example of environmental adaptation in the ocean. They are composed of 95 percent water. Unparalleled in diaphanous luminosity, they are also a natural inspiration for lighting elements."

Love that you can turn your home into an undersea fantasy.
