Natures Spheres

Natures Spheres

Note design studio presents a set of spherical lamps on top of wooden bases, each of them inspired by the tiny organisms that spring from the forest floor like tiny candles. Yes, Note, walking around in the forest looking for inspiration, finding hidden in the green moss small families of fungi. In response, these loving lamps. Each lamp is designed for low energy lights made to keep our natural inspiration safe as long as possible, moss and fungi and all.

The Future Of Escaping

The Future Of Escaping

Keeping your wits during an emergency evacuation of a building is easier said than done. If it’s a hotel or an unfamiliar mall, following the leads can be difficult and even confusing at times. The LED Escape Light is a portable LED electric torch meant to tackle this issue of unfamiliarity. It comes with a built-in projector that projects a map to guide you out accurately. I like the handy stand that it is housed in, with an easy grab-and-run vibe.

Wood, Plastic, and Light

Wood, Plastic, and Light

It’s a fabulous link between plastic and wood. Yes, plastic and wood, the most amazing two materials in the world! But look – in this case the plastic is flexible and the wood is rigid. The plastic embraces the light to protect you from it and to diffuse the warm color. The wood… it’s natural. The lamp is sold unassembled to save space during transport and so that at the end of the life of the lamp, each piece can be separated and recycled in the most pure way. No glue or nails needed.

Yellow Shape Above

Yellow Shape Above

In an aim to renew the use of so called traditional materials, designer Rodrigo Vairinhos of Neo Design presents this lovely yellow lamp that goes by the name “Longo.” Look at the elegance! Vairinhos informs us that the creation of this project is ecologically friendly, tying the always classic ceramic with the relatively new excellence of LED light. And it’s not just in yellow! Hooray for white/white, white/black, AND white/yellow.

Pour Me Some Light

Pour Me Some Light

Human actions play such a significant role in design; it’s either evident in the form or in the function. In the Pouring Light, the action is evident in the form and is delightfully executed as well! With the motive of giving off “an emotional flow of light”, the lights linger on with a mesmerizing effect thanks to the use of phosphorescence in the “water” part. Yeongwoo suggests the use of LED lights to conserve energy, and my suggestion to him: get this in the market ASAP!

Hammerheads Above Us

Hammerheads Above Us

Inspired by the head of a shovel, (and quote obviously also by the head of a certain fancy looking shark,) this is the modular street lighting system Sphyrna. Designed by FORMBOTEN, that fantastic design team from Hannover, this system is modular not only in its head, but in its height as well. The various lamp heads make this system suitable for the urban lighting of roads, roundabouts (if you’re anywhere that isn’t the USA,) or outdoor shopping malls. And bonus! There’s a fancy seat to go with the system!

Nude Looker Lamp

Nude Looker Lamp

It’s not naked. It’s stripped. Stripped down to a minimalistic look and feel and working order. Essentials, that’s what is here. But it’s not just a stick and lick of fire, it’s a lamp, The PERCY LAMP; so it’s got some style too. It’s made to have character-like qualities, turning this functional piece of lighting into a product users feel drawn to engage with. To do this, the aesthetic draws heavily on the buttress root system of the Moreton Bay Fig Tree.

Hands of Light and Darkness

Hands of Light and Darkness

It has hands of darkness some times, and hands of light at others. It doesn’t always illuminate the time, but it’ll never leave you in the dark. What is it? Equinox! The clock that’ll illuminate the way you view your hours, minutes, and seconds. Designer Bram Knaapen presents hours as three colored blocks, minutes as a single colored block, and seconds as a fading row of blocks, all of them sliding round and round the Equinox circle.

Lamp and Vase Display

Lamp and Vase Display

Two items, one intent. There’s the “Platevase” combination plate and vase and the “Favourite Things” pendant lamp. With the Platevase you can place not only a lovely flower or flowering treebranch, you can fill it with chocolates and other lovely edibles! What a fantastic combination of smells and tastes made possible by a round porcelain vase! Then there’s the Favourite Things, a pendant lamp with room for all your most awesome little items. Put anything you want in there and bam! Lit well, displayed well, makes the item feel really important. A real esteem booster for trinkets!

Timing Your Lights

Timing Your Lights

The idea is pretty direct and in-your-face….we need to conserve our electricity and can’t have you squandering it away. So how do we implement this? By taking tiny innovative steps, like introducing a timer concept for our lights; especially for the ones on the staircase. A device called the Flat Light does just this, the LED Hourglass interface is quite indicative of its intentions. Once the LED grains reach the bottom, time’s up and lights out! I wonder if you can set the time limits for the whole system, in advance. Question is, are you willing to make the necessary changes to conserve?

Sweet Fragrance Of Lights

Sweet Fragrance Of Lights

Incense sticks play such an important role in our spiritual life; they exude a sense of wellbeing, peace and calmness when we light them. Keeping this in mind and taking inspiration from their soft glowing tips is the Scent – Incense Stick Mood Lights. A bunch of them charge in a base station and can be placed individually or collectively, as you please. The only way I can think of improvising this, will be to add in a aroma dispenser…making it a total replica of the real thing!

Infinite Candle

Infinite Candle

This project goes by the name “One Makes Another” and it takes one candle, a spool of string, and a little bit of metal. Bam! Infinite candle. Right? Sort of. Designer Yuya Kurata describes this project as a candle holder which makes another candle underneath as it melts, but one that isn’t quite complete. The concept is here, the candle isn’t quite ready for it. Because candles do not gutter as much as would be necessary, a slightly distorted candle is made. However! One Make Another does sort of work. It’s nearly there. All they’d need is a different candle consistency and a little bit of the ol’ modification of physics!
