Leva Task Lamp

ITRE LEVA 1ITRE Leva dettaglio 2ITRE Leva SL1

Must have. This task lamp is kicked up a notch with the Leva, master Architect Massimo Iosa Ghini’s latest creation for Leucos USA brand ITRE.

Its structure is composed of beech wood with a natural enameled finish and edgy steel components. An LED beams through its unconventional diffuser. Made of opal white Poly(methyl methacrylate)(PMMA), this diffuser boasts a subtle grid of orbs through which much of the light is delivered.

Im-pressed Stationary

Stationery  Gentlemen  2

Im-pressed was founded by Traci Keen just last year, but she has already built up a pretty wide and fun selection of stationary, greeting cards, and the like. A career change from corporate finance led her to the letterpress– away from computers and back to working with her hands (she completed her B.A. in Graphic Design at Simmons College in Boston).

I’ve got samples in my office and I can tell you it’s great stuff.

My favorites are definitely Mr. Collar and Mr. Hat!

My friend Dave White is at it again– this time with a new exhibition (and his largest to date) entitled “Natural Selection” presented by London’s The Hospital Club Gallery and artrepublic.

The show will shine a spotlight on a number of threatened animal species and consist of an array of oil paintings, limited edition prints and works on paper.

Additionally, in celebration of the upcoming exhibition, White and Talenthouse are extending an opportunity to animators, inviting submissions of showreels and short films inspired by the Amazonian Parrot, with the winning animator set to collaborate with White on a brand new piece to be featured in the London show. Those interested can find further info and enter here. “Natural Selection” is set to open on June 22 and run through July 7.

Fear.Less: Daniel Ting & Jordan Metcalf

Fear.Less is a collaborative project between Daniel Ting Chong & Jordan Metcalf. The objects are all representative of weapons/items used in acts of crime in South Africa, both by criminal and the law. More pictures here (and a few of my favorites below).

The objects seek to playfully examine the place of fear and crime in South Africa context, framing our obsession with violence and the casual paranoia we all seem to suffer from. By scaling the objects and turning them into artworks, the artists aim to re-contextualise the place these items hold in our everyday lives.
