Joseph Begley is an english designer with a great sense of humor. His latest creation cleverly entitled Slap It shows it perfectly. Slap It is a lamps made out of silicone, that really looks like a butt, which turns on and off when you slap it. If you are a little more gentle, you can also pinch it, it works just fine too.

Super Modern Coen Lamps.


Designed by the Berlin-based studio “böttcher+henssler”, Coen lamps are a white version of the designers’ dark prototype lamp, Troll. Although Troll is made of sheet metal, it brings back images of an upturned wooden ancient sauna accessory (a pail with two handles) called “kiulu” in Finnish. In contrast, the slim, white (and silver) Coen lamps are supremely stylish, quite at home next to an Alvar Aalto Paimio chair.  Coen lamps are part of the new collection by the lighting manufacturer ANTA Leuchten GmbH. Coens will be introduced at Salone Internazionale del Mobile’s Euroluce next week.  Böttcher+henssler is a product design studio founded in 2007 by Moritz Böttcher und Sören Henssler. Winners of a red dot product design award and other accolades, the duo focuses on designing beautiful and functional consumer products.

Byoungho Kim’s Sculptured Art.


Is it visual art, audio art, a sculpture, a product, a machine? Byoungho Kim’s works could be described as all of these. They are visually stunning, make sounds, have a sculptural quality and they are manufactured just like any other highly-engineered industrial products.  Born in Seoul, Korea, in 1974 Kim has explored the edges of art and product, sounds and visuals throughout his career. As his sound sculptures have no “practical use,” they are defined as art but their intrigue lies in the technology behind them.  The two lighting fixture-like pieces we are featuring are made of aluminum and they use both piezo and arduino technology. A piezo is an electronic device that be used to both play and detect tones. arduino is a popular open-source single-board microcontroller. None of this means much to most of us, but the result — sounds being emitted and changed by the sculptures — is fascinating.
