The “BLUR Collection” by Big-Game is one of the better design projects I’ve seen lately. The vases are so high that the flowers disappear almost completely into them, only their colored shadow appear through the frosted glass. The tables and mirrors are silkscreened with a gradient. Your reflection disappears towards to bottom of the mirror. The tables look like they are up in the clouds. Nice work!

“Everything You Want, Right Now!” is the title of the current solo show of Steve Lambert at the Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles. The lights on these signs are of course animated, you can see them in action in the video below.
Haaa!!! and Hooo!!! are 2 new lamps designed by Philippe Starck, Haaa!!! is a big floor lamp, Hooo!!! is a table lamp. Actually it was a true collaboration between 5 parties: the design is by Philippe Starck, text is by Jenny Holzer, the custom electronics were done by Moritz Waldemeyer, the crystal by Baccarat and the execution by Flos.
The be honest, I don’t think the design is very interesting, I’m pretty sure that Philippe recycled some of his older designs … So why is it interesting? For me it is the visual effect of having a white LED matrix running through a handmade crystal lamp, displaying the truisms of Jenny Holzer. Of course both a very limited, only 9 units will be available of Haaa!!! and will cost €90.000, Hooo!!! will be build 49 times and will set you back €9.000.
Diesel is the next fashion brand to launch its own furniture line, it definitely fits its claim “Sucessful Living”. They teamed up with 3 brands : Moroso for the furniture, Foscarini for the lightning and Zucchi for the home textiles. You can see some items from the collection in this Wallpaper gallery.
My favorite is this lamp called Rock.
