Midsummer Light by Tord Boontje
Lighting really can make or break a room. I was looking at a condo the other day that had a door on the ceiling as a light fixture. Now, while it worked wonderfully in their kitchen, I'm not sure if I could pull it off. This light fixture on the other hand I adore! I think a set of tree hanging above my dining room table would be awesome. Or perhaps just one above my desk? It's the appearance of paper that I appreciate. The delicate snowflake floral cover...even though it's not delicate (thankfully!) it's tyvek. I prefer the solid colors (particularly the red and yellow) but the graduated two color ones are nice as well.
I love quirky design like this - something really unexpected that is also a little provocative.
indeed magical, this time piece captures another time entirely. i love the greyscale and the simple hands. the detailing of the design is pure fantasy.
haHA! this clock is awesome! whimsical and so hip at the same time, this will make a great addition to the room that needs just a little big dose of style.
