FLOOR LAMPS of the month

Posted: 23.10.2013 at 18:11 | Comments: 0

BLACK LIGHT - Having a black bulb instead of a regular one adds a detail that makes a big difference in the interpretation of the the final product. Diana Dumitrescu is a young designer from Bucharest, Romania. She likes ‘to experiment the edges of what’s possible or accepted in design.

THE SPOT LAMP - The Spot Lamp by Nir Meiri draws its inspiration from industrial images such as a crane, a spot light, or a street lamp. The base is heavy, made of metal or concrete, which helps balance the lamp. The lamp shade is not fixed and can move freely to the sides, on the slight poll.

CRANE LAMP - Studio Job created Crane Lamp, a floor-standing piece 163cm high made from bronze that mimics the real thing through the use of miniature lights at the boom point and instead of a heavy load, the crane holds a small light with shade.

 

WATERDREAM- by designer Oki Sato who is part of the Nendo team. The lamp-shower or showering-lamp was designed for Axor, part of the german brand Hansgrohe which is creating bathroom furniture. Sato says he wanted the design to illustrate the future of what bathrooms could look like.

Alex Trochut’s BINARY PRINTS look completely different in the dark

Posted: 10.06.2013 at 13:48 | Comments: 0

Barcelona-based creative powerhouse Alex Trochut has developed a print-making technique where two separate images can be seen in the same picture depending on whether it’s viewed in the light or the dark. And so Binary Prints was born, a series of portraits of some the biggest electro musicians and producers working today. “These nocturnal portraits ‘wake up’ in the dark, just as the DJs come alive at night, as do audiences under the spell of their music,” Alex says.
