String Lights












This is how Michael Anastassiades, a Cypriot designer based in London and born in 1967, describes the principle that inspired the String Lights ceiling lamp: a black electric wire that sets up a relationship with the architecture of a space, precisely becoming part of the lines formed by the walls of a room. And stretched out along these lines are two different light sources: one in the shape of an isosceles triangle, the other in the form of a sphere. A system of tensors give volume and three-dimensionality to the form outlined by this lightweight cord that plays with space, while the two LED lamps emit a warm light.

Boeing Wingtip Desk



In a twist of high-flying innovation, a French design studio repurposed this Boeing wingtip into a sleek, futuristic desk. Les Ateliers Flown created the piece from a 737-800 model wingtip in a cantilevered design, meaning the white-and-silver wing stands on one “leg” of its own as it intersects the floor with a curved wing joint. A thick granite slab props up the wingtip on the other end.

The 13-foot desk is currently on display in Paris’ Gustave Moreau Museum, but it will be auctioned off to aviation enthusiasts in March.

Floating Paper Shelves





Looks like a gust of wind has suddenly caused a stack of blank, white paper to blow through your house!

Japanese design studio YOY is behind Blow, white shelves formed by bending A4 size thin steel plates into five different types of shapes. Used either upside or downside, each individual shelf can then be fixed to a wall with a hook.
