“Concrete has formed our world by giving us the ability to construct in new ways. Diamonds, the ultimate objects of desire have no real impact on our way of life but their superlative qualities that superceed their usability have intrigued us for ages.”

Created by Ministry of mass

Material: Concrete enriched with Titanium Dioxide, the titanium is purifying air.

The aim with The Diamond is to  reevaluate materials and their intrinsic properties while criticizing our perception driven culture.”

“Simple tubes become light sculptures, minimal lines become tables or shelves. A direct reflection on the splendour of art deco and the directness of modernism. Although everything has been reduced to the most simple technological solution these furnitures keep their multi functionality: a table with a table-leg turning into a cantilever lamp, an open cabinet where one of the shelves becomes a table  and tables where the tabletop is a cutting board.”

This duo has created simple and beautiful furniture where the high quality material is in focus. Fien Muller, photographer, and Hannes Van Severen, artist, are Muller Van Severen.

 “An original ”Tellurion” is a mechanical representation of the Earth-Moon-Sun system that reproduces the relative movement of the three bodies. The model visualizes the causes of night and day, solar and lunar eclipses and the phases of the Moon.”  Teluria by Note

Produced by Klong.

 I love the result, but i almost love their source of inspiration more: an old astronomic instrument with the help from candlelight describe how the light from the sun is creating the eclipses of the earth and of the moon. This is an example of  an impressive 19th century tellurion.

“Inspired by the phases of the moon and its contrast between light and shadow.”

Dome by Todd Bracher, found at Mater – ethical living

It is made with 50% recycled aluminum and creates a 360 degree pattern from its source. This piece, for some reason, reminds me of the fantastic beautiful movie Melancholia, which can only be a good thing.

This LED-light is not what it seems. Look closely.
