With all the modern pet decor on the market -- dog blankets knit from dog fur, modern kitty litter boxes, eco-friendly cardboard cat houses, bird feeders as sculpture -- it’s not surprising that a modernist fish tank would debut for spring.
The Fishcondo, designed by Teddy Luong, a student at Carleton University School of Industrial Design, won first place at Umbra’s ‘Build a Better’ design competition. This mod aquarium is basically a glass fish bowl with a white ABS plastic shell that creates floors and windows. The glass bowls can be taken out for easy cleaning.
The units, which are 7.5 inches square and 8 inches high, can be stacked to create a condo-like appearance. $25 from Unica Home. Shipping is $8.50 and begins in June. For more details, click here.
