Constellation: LED Chandelier

Constellation

Like sparklers frozen in time, Studio 1Thousand‘s Constellation LED chandelier is a glowing representation of its inspiration: Queen Anne’s lace. This simple, yet elegant and heart-warming chandelier uses the electricity of a 20-watt light bulb to power 364 LEDs.

In an interview with The Modern Materialist, the designer laments that current designs often “engage people on a brain level” rather than “at the heart level.” This lighting, however, would certainly stop the hearts of many a dinner guest!

Passage for Peace

Passage for Peace

Reach out and touch someone with gestural interconnectivity! San Francisco’s Knoend and Pocobor make this happen through a wireless sculpture called ‘Passage for Peace’ – yet another outstanding exhibit at Milan’s Salone Satellite 2009.

Placed in two cities, the glass and metal columns allow people to “physically see, hear, and feel someone else across the world,” says Ivy Chuang of Knoend.

Each column is set to play a specific octave and when harmonious chords play, light moves through all 12 columns – in both cities!

Never buy another bed again! The v-bed from Tojo is an expandable investment that will move with you from your Manhattan studio to your SOMA loft and back again! Rest on a twin to king and everything in between.  Stack two twin mattresses for daytime seating and lay them out for nighttime guests!  The award-winning bed is the brainchild of designer Roy Schäfer.

Another gem from the Salone Satellite 2009 – the coveted space for young talent at the Milan Design Week. Giorgio Biscaro’s Metamerick Table is the ultimate customizable dining table.  The design’s bold geometry and color combinations make the table extraordinary. Its modularity takes it a step further. You choose: straight or bendy!  Rumor has it, we may find this trapezoidal masterpiece available soon in colorful, recycled finishes. See more of his work here.

Computers can see! They can search images based on visual attributes such as color, shape and texture. This tool is ideal for novices wondering which colors will go well together, as well as color lovers who wish to indulge in instant gratification.

Select up to 10 colors from a palette of 120 for an instant mosaic. The Idée Multicolr Search Lab currently searches 10 million of the most “interesting” photos on Flickr, while its professional counterpart, Multicolour Search Lab, riffles through a mere 2.8 million stock images from Alamy. Could this be the end of shredding magazines for inspiration boards and collages?
