Who’s a good lamp? YOU ARE a good lamp!

When describing various pieces of furniture and accessories around your home, words like “chic” and “modern” might come into play, but chances are you don’t look at your bedside lamp and describe it as “adorable”. If you own a Luminose “puppy lamp” you might. Designed by Elizabeth Zimmerer and Márton Lente, both of whom love dogs and interior design, the lamp is probably the cutest thing we’ve seen recently. It’s sure to generate plenty of conversation as well, thanks to its clever design.

A cannabis vape for the naturalist

If you stay up on the latest in cannabis vaporizers, you know there are some pretty high tech options out there today. From the Firefly to the Pax, and the new Davinci IQ, everything seems to be all about sleek curves, bluetooth connectivity, and technological advancement. What if you only care about actually vaporizing though? For the flip phone lovers among us, there’s still one great option out there. The Magic Flight Launch Box.

This simple, elegant vape brings a handcrafted style that contrasts the aforementioned vapes. It’s small, fitting easily in the palm of your hand, and very discreet looking. Basically it looks like something you might have made in shop class. And that’s OK because it’s a very elegant design, with quotes on the back. It uses a battery to complete the circuit and works with conduction heating.

Overall it takes some finesse to use. You need to pull slowly and get the timing just right, otherwise the herb can heat up too quickly and taste burnt, or not fast enough in which case it won’t vaporize.

Blind Artist Creates Incredible Glowing Tree Stump Lanterns

Duncan Meerding is legally blind, but you’d never know that just by looking at these beautiful split logs that emit a glowing light through their cracks. He’s fascinated by various sorts of light applications which he says help him appreciate an “alternative sensory world”. Each glowing log is sustainably sourced and then outfitted with warm yellow LED lights that make it glow from within.

The Opera Camper Brings High Design To Camping

Stowaway trailers like this aren’t exactly new, and for decades people have hitched them to their vehicles, roaming from state to state in search of adventure. For the most part, normal trailer designs remain largely uninspired. The Opera trailer on the other hand, is anything but normal. Design inspiration comes from the Sydney Opera House, and the company behind the product, Your Suite in Nature, built this luxury mobile “popup” home with both form and function in mind.

Tucked away, it looks like a normal camper.

Beautiful Water Faucet Is A Work Of Art And Sustainability

In a recent design contest, Simim Qui took home the iF Design Concept award for what has to be the most beautiful water faucet we’ve ever seen. If you’re like most people, you don’t give much thought to the way water looks when it flows from the tap. But once you see the patterned streams from his invention you’ll realize there’s something special here.

Basically the water flows through a double-turbine which creates a spectacular pattern. In fact, the design includes three settings, each producing a different spiral. Not only does the water look great as it spirals down in a lattice pattern, but it also saves 15% versus a traditional tap. In a world where we face increasing drought and demand for water, this product is something we hope to see in stores around the world.

Glowing Tree Ring Tables Light Up The Night

Last week we shared some incredible glowing tree stump lanterns made by a legally blind artist from Australia. Today we bring you a different sort of glowing tree stump, which is equally impressive. Made by Justin Beaumont of Straight Line Design, these tree rings are fashioned from Pine Beetle wood. Each stump is sliced and then coated with a colored resin top. While they look pretty cool during the day, as-is, the real magic happens at night when the ring patterns light up thanks to embedded lights beneath the surface.

Straight Line Designs, Inc. is based in Vancouver, British Columbia and these examples were originally created for the Summer Lights show. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like these ever went into any formal production, though we imagine Justin could be commissioned to produce some more for anyone interested.
