With Jonas Samson's high-tech light-emitting wallpaper it's possible to use a two-dimentional flat surface as light source instead of a 3D object. It came in 240cm x 360cm size, for your wall not your side table of course.'>

Equation bookshelf

Equation bookshelf
Can't decide which book to read first?
'Equation Bookshelf' is a simple idea of to divide things in priority order...put together the books that you need immediately or more important between (parentheses)! Set others between [square brackets] and {braces}.-estudio breder.

Lap pool house-Simple Stunning Architecture o2

Shaw House,lap pool Forgive me for calling it a Lap Pool House, but from this point of view, wouldn't u too have the urge to jump into the pool? (captivating moment by Benjamin Benschneider)
Shaw House by Patkau Architects, is an award winning design from American Institute of Architects National Honor Award 2oo5, Governor General’s Medal 2oo4 & Record House Selection 2002.
Built on a narrow 1o metres wide & 47 deep waterfront properties, because of setback requirements, the architect was left with only 8 metres wide space with the consideration of living areas, bedroom, study, music room, and a lap pool for a single individual. The pool was built above grade along with other private areas, bedroom & study. Living spaces on grade & music room was built below grade. "Small spaces are enlarged with generous ceiling heights, while the fully interiorized dining room rises through the floor above to a clerestory that brings both daylight and light reflected from the lap pool deep into the central area of the plan."-Patkau Architects

Yoga Loft

yoga loft, oversized mirror
yoga loft, livingyoga loft, staircaseyoga loft, bedroomyoga loft, wardrobe & bathroomI can't help noticing the white cleanliness of this loft!
It looks so open, spacious & peacefully calm. The profusely applied of oversized mirror, vaulted ceiling, transparent & semi-transparent materials such as glass & sheer fabric facilitate light flow & ventilation. "But the balance, illumination and austerity it reflects may be reasons why it is called Yoga loft!-design flute

Fiela feather arc light

Fiela feather arc light
The beautiful soft white feathers that looks like protecting the spherical diffuser are from Oudtshoorn, South Africa, an ostrict farming district.
The light is named after Dalene Mathee book, "Fiela se Kind", written originally in Afrikaans & later translated into not only English (Fiela's Child") but other languages too.
Words from the designer:
"The Fiela Feather Arc Light has been designed to bring light & angelic ambience to exactly where you need it most- the center of your social dining and living room space"-Haldane Martin.
Like the climax of the story where the child finally being able to choose to return to his adopted family, Fiela Light would be a warm focus point in a space itself.

Feature project using Fiela Light:
