Fruits Table Lamp

July 25th, 2012

I used to be really into product design, but lately I find most of it quite boring. From time to time something nice pops up when I’m surfing around like this “Fruits Table Lamp” by S&O Design.

Surface Tension Lamp

April 17th, 2012

It’s again that time of the year when all the product designers show their latest and greatest work at the Milan furniture fair. A few hours ago I was still thinking how bored I am with product design lately …
But Front came to the rescue with this fantastic project: “Surface Tension Lamp”.

A bubble is brief, and bursts at your touch. But while it lasts, it catches the light and reflects the room like a multi-coloured temporary structure. We wanted to create a constantly changing lamp that combines the most ephemeral of lampshades with an LED light source that will last for 50000 hours. In the time it takes the LED to burn out, the lamp will have had 3 million different globe shades.

Just watch the video!

Here’s the same lamp, but they added smoke to the soap bubble …

“Light & Jelly” is series of lamps cast in jelly by Le Creative Sweatshop and then photographed by Fabrice Fouillet. The results are very colorful and look stunning.

Collection of Light

December 13th, 2011

The “Collection of Light” by humans since 1982 is probably the best lamp I’ve seen in a while. It is simply a collection of LEDs which together constitute a lamp in itself. They wanted to create an aura of a real collection (similar to a collection of insects) and expose each illuminant as a worthy industrial product. The LEDs are all labeled (with name, size and colour temperature) and arranged in a specific order to accomplish harmonic light.
I want one!

Visible Structures

May 9th, 2011

Visible Structures is a series of 12 pieces of furniture designed by Nendo. They are made from foam core that is reinforced with industrial strength carbon tape. Those strips of tape are the visible structure but also a graphical element. I’m really tempted to try this out myself.

Osso

April 12th, 2011

Osso is a new series of chairs designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for the Italian brand Mattiazzi. The chairs are made of oak, maple or ash, but it’s their production process that I find interesting. The pieces are milled by a digitally controlled CNC machine. This is probably one of the few ways to produce this design on a larger scale.

Transparent Table

April 7th, 2011

I’m pretty sure that I’ll never buy a glass table but the black version of Nendo‘s transparent table is the closest what I would consider. They’ve cast wood with a strong grain in clear acrylic and assembled the pieces to create a table. The level of detail is quite impressive, the edges are beveled and the ends even have the matching grain.
