Alone, But Never Lonely
Okeanos Aquascaping is a bespoke aquariums designer mainly known for their high-end, ultra customized tanks. Started in 2002 by two high school friends, it has grown to one of the leader companies in their industry. As the company enters the semi-retail space they have launched the Isolate series tank. This series can accommodate fresh or saltwater fish, or a planted terrarium; creating a completely personalized and self contained miniature environment. This tank is meant to be elegant, functional and the center of attention. The craftsmanship and level of detail really go above-and-beyond, almost making the aquarium an art piece. Our favorite, the Isolate Brooklyn Edition, features an 11” glass cube with beveled edges. Lightning is provided by an in-house built black pipe fixture and the base isbaltic birch plywood with walnut stain. This particular edition sports a hand painted and resined skull that goes inside the tank. According to Martin Schapira, lead designer for Okeanos, the idea of the isolate was developed as an artistic concept, we quote: “There is something beautiful about fish, but once you put on a large aquarium it looses its magnificence. Isolate was built to make sure the beauty is appreciated – individually, that is.” For that same reason, Okeanos has initially tied up their project with some of the top and trending artists at the moment. Limited edition skulls by Alec Monopoly, King Saladeen & Martinius Maximus The Third are available upon request and at a gallery price. Other versions of Isolate tank are also available and feature different lightning and bases. This will certainly make a nice addition to your living room.
