For those who want things that are a little bit out of common, here is a great and beautiful example of how you can use illumination with style. Javier Henriquez and Sebastian Lara from the Mexican design studio eos méxico got inspired by the suburb afternoons and came up with this beautiful birds on a wire illumination. A simple design, but the effect is very interesting, and I’m sure that is not to much work to build yourself one of these.
Here’s the coolest lighting I’ve seen in quite a while. It’s called FlapFlap and comes from hopf & wortmann in Germany. Pretty cool, or what do you think? On their site you can read that it’s a limited edition product from 2001, so you probably have to go to eBay or something if you want one.
