Artist: Nick Cave

while at my local museum this weekend i saw a work that stuck with me.  a piece i'd never seen anything like before.  it felt larger than life and i knew it was something special.  it was a nick cave soundsuit.  in fact, it's the one pictured above front row center.  watch the video here to see the suits in motion and see an interview.

Lighting: Hayon Studio


three new lighting collections by hayon studio for metalarte:

The Bastoni Collection: I have been thinking of this sort of lamp for ages: one you could drag comfortable all around the house for reading. I am the type of guy who moves plenty and this lamp would be the perfect one for me. It was also an element with a sense of humor, something I truly appreciate in a piece. The America Collection came from the idea of integrating a coffee table and a lamp. This is a very useful piece and something I can see placed in a variety of contexts. The Santa collection was a natural evolution from the America collection as we immediately saw the shape’s potential for a smaller size.



Etsy Lunch Hour: Black & White

Furniture: Salsa by Vanerum Stelter

salsa, by vanerum stelter, is a beautiful collaborative furniture design that i think is perfect for education or libraries.
