LET THERE BE LIGHT

BUT NOT TOO MUCH LIGHT! I LIKE MY SPACES VERY DIMMLY LIT WITH OCCASIONAL, SIGNATURE LAMPS.

MY FAVOURITES ARE THE LAMPS DESIGNED BY FLOS IN ITALY. FOR OVER 50 YEARS FLOS HAS BEEN ONE OF THE UN-PARALLELED WORLD LEADERS IN DECORATIVE LIGHTING, THEIR DISTINGUISHING FEATURE IS THEIR HIGH QUALITY APPROACH TO INNOVATIVE DESIGNS AND PRODUCTION.

DESIGNERS LIKE ACHILLE & PIER GIACOMO CASTIGLIONI , TOBIA SCARPA, PHILIPPE STARCK, MARCEL WANDERS, PAUL COCKSEDGE, MARC NEWSON, JASPER MORRISON, PATRICIA URQUIOLA, PIERO LISSONI, ANTONIO CITTERIO, KOSTANIN GRICIC IHAVE LLUMINATED THE FLOS BRAND.

THE PHILIPPE STARCK HORN LAMP IS A CULT CLASSIC DESIGNED IN THE 80s. STARCK HAS JUST RELEASED ‘PHOTON’ TO COMMEMORATE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF FLOS. THIS LIMITED EDITION TABLE LAMP (500 ONLY) WILL NO DOUBT BECOME A COLLECTOR’S CLASSIC….ON MY WISHLIST…..

CINEMAGRAPHS

ARE LIVING PHOTOGRAPHS – GIFs which have just one small element of repetitive movement, to make them look alive.

IT’S FUN TO MAKE YOUR OWN AND WHEN I GET SOME TIME I WILL DO JUST THAT… UNTIL THEN, I LOVE THESE ESCALATORS AND THEIR LINEAR NATURE…
