The French designer – best known for products including the Juicy Salif lemon squeezer and the Louis Ghost Chair – got the idea for the product after watching a waiter using a broom handle to reposition the lighting in a New York restaurant.

Light Art inside medieval architecture Castel Del Monte, Andria

Castel del Monte is the first Italian monument to be the set of the virtual art installation by the artist Miguel Chevalier.
For this installation, Chevalier was inspired by the Italian tradition of the mosaic, an ancestor of the digital pixels; the pixels in the projections get altered according to the music creating shapes and movements which react with the movements of the visitors walking over the installation.

The Optimistic Lamp : Sun Rising Lamp, Japan - love this concept

Sun Rising Lamp is a peaceful creation from Japanese design firm, h220430. In Japan, it’s a tradition for people to worship at sunrise on the beginning of the year, with new spirits and hopes and recite their New Year’s resolution. Considering that every day still starts with a sunrise, the firm believes that if people can retain the same, optimistic feeling every day with the rising of the sun, the world will become a much more peaceful place.
