    Four rooms in one

    With the ingenious Matroshka Furniture you get four rooms in one as the living room, bedroom, study and dining room are all neatly compacted into 15 square metres. There’s even plenty of storage space. The design is inspired by the Russian Matroshka wooden dolls that hide inside each other. 

    Multi-purpose rooms, great design.

    Artist Adam Frank’s light creations have a wonderful mystical quality about them. His Lumen Flames are a series of acid-etched, stainless steel, oil lamp shadow projectors that casts an enchanting shadow from a tiny, stainless motive. The Pine motive is also available with a specialized LED in place of the flame. Price: $48/$60 

    Reveal is a new type of ambient interior lighting. This small projector implies the presence of a real window by simulating sunlight entering through an imaginary window.
    Price: $280. Adam Frank will be exhibiting at BKLYN DESIGN next month.

    I’m ashamed how much this commercial speaks to me…. it’s the built with your own hands bit…
