The Darwin Jellyfish Tank

The Darwin Sect

Florence Samain and Dave Monfort of the Belgium-based studio The Darwin Sect have designed this striking tank to display at home one of the most intriguing creature of the sea: Jellyfish. Sit back and rejoice in the subtle, fluid movements of your jellyfish in a beautiful habitat specially designed for them. With The Darwin Jellyfish Tank let the shadows cast on the walls and ceiling hypnotize you. Scrutinize their alien anatomy through the curved dome of the globe, which acts as a magnifying glass. Perfectly rounded and with fluid lines which echo the delicate shape of the creatures within, the Darwin Jellyfish Tank gives the impression there is but a single membrane between the water and the air. A drop of the ocean holding delicate life, right in your home.


Jellyfish are surprisingly poor swimmers, and are carried along by currents, no matter how weak. This is why Darwin Sect devised a system allowing the pump to aspirate the water without harming the jellyfish. Rigged with LEDs, the 375mm high aquarium allows us to admire the evolution of three adult Aurelia aurita jellyfish.

The Darwin Jellyfish Tank project is currently seeking funding on kickstarter.
