Octopus-Inspired Designs


Did you know that October 8 was International Octopus Day? Oct. 8, get it? Personally, I think we should also celebrate the other cephalopods: squid, cuttlefish (especially LITTLE RED CUTTLEFISH), and nautiluses. From the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.

“Octopuses are exceptionally intelligent and creative creatures, and have been able to solve most of the puzzles and challenges that scientists put before them in laboratories. This, coupled with their unique and fearsome appearance, makes them the perfect inspiration for stories about terrors from the deep!”

  1. My favorite is the watch! Love the door knob too! Octopus Rules!

  2. Oh, I want one of each!!! These rock. We have a dream of an ocean themed house, have the house now need to fulfill the dream. I’m sure these are more expensive that we can afford, but gee, I’d love to use all of them.

  3. Reblogged this on Ann WJ White and commented:
    I want one of each of these. Octopus are creatures of such strength, moral fiber, and mystery that these would be fun to decorate with. I’m sure I can’t afford them, but what great ideas.
