Lichtschlucker Pendant Lights by Meike Harde…

…disposable never looked so good…

The lights Lichtschlucker work with disposable cups, which normally have a very short lifetime. The different models show the great variety of shapes by different arrangement of cups. Lichtschlucker offers disposable dishes a permanent life as a decorative lamp shade. The ecological aspect consists in the fact that a disposable product is converted into a durable and functional furnishing.

Once Upon a Time…

…a striking artist’s studio loomed atop a rocky beach.  The only way it could be reached was by hiking along the shore.  The floors of the structure rotated, giving the studio a playful and unique geometry.  The studio brought inspiration to any artist lucky enough to reside there…

The Norwegian based firm Saunders Architecture has completed a series of cabin-like artists’ studios on the lovely island of Fogo in Canada. The studios house artists participating in the Fogo Island Arts Corporation’s residency program. Tower Studio is one these stunning residences.
