Every once in a while I will see something which makes me look at things in a different way. More often than not this occurs when I witness a clever reinterpretation of a conventional subject (or an object), a simple idea executed beautifully which redefines everyday concepts. Oh how I love when this happens. I feel like my horizon expands and my design vision extends. Perhaps this is because my design vision is so short sighted with much room for improvement? Who knows.
Anyway… This was precisely the feeling I got when I saw the 2011 ECO Pavilion in Mexico City. I mean seriously – how friggin clever?! It is just a whole bunch of rope interwoven through a single space. How amazing can it be? Well, turns out it can be pretty bloody amazing…
…What I really wanted to bring your attention to were these incredible lights by the German born, Paris based Christian Haas. I’m speechless. Every once in a while I come across something so amazing that I wish I thought of it myself. This is one of those products. So incredibly clever and just so beautiful.
Ropes are handmade in France and Germany, and combine energy-efficient LED technology with a soft textile look. Each piece is unique and individually numbered according to their style and technique…
