Muscicapa – Do Not Go Into The Light

The Muscicapa is an insect catcher designed by Tomoko Azumi. Purposely designed to look like an ordinary lamp, what it hides is quite sinister. Flying insects are attracted to it by a green light that for the most part is invisible to humans. Out of uncontrollable curiousity, insects will enter into its glowy casm only find a sticky trap. The design is meant to be less obstrusive than other light based bug catchers by blending into the decor. It also avoids using electricity or poison as a means to dispose of the bugs which is altogether better for the environment and safer for humans.
