Fish Bowls is a 2007 project by designer Roger Arquer that shows us multiple variations on the standard fish bowl.
Above the Do Not Piss Me Off bowl, which tells us about the power to decide between the life and death of the fish.
Al lot of people feel like that these bowl designs are fish unfriendly, but all of the fish bowls created by Roger Arquer also feel like a protest against the standard fishbowl, which in its original design is a horrible place to keep a fish.
Dezeen posted these fish bowls 5 years ago, and has proven to be one of their most popular posts ever.
