The Babylon Light is a plantable light fixture. Made of aluminum with a powder coated finish, it can be used as an organic centre piece or a working herb garden over the kitchen counter. No matter where it’s situated – Babylon will become your very own hanging garden.

Ori Lighting Series:

Ori lightning series is the offspring of a collaboration between Producks design studio and Textile Designer Mika Barr. The design starting point was Mika’s Folding Apart fabric. The fabric has a special print on it that gives it an inner structure making it fold according to the printed pattern.

Description from the designers:

The name comes from the word ‘Ori’ that means folding in Japanese, and also consists the word ‘Or’ which means light in Hebrew.

The idea behind Ori was to create a volume of light in a new manner and to create a new typology. The geometric cloud-like shapes are manufactured identically, however, Ori makes the user part of the process, giving him the opportunity to interfere in the final design and give it a unique shape.  The shape can be changed time and time again.

Mushroom Lamp:

Japanese Design Studio h220430 have created the Mushroom Lamp.

Description from the designers:

After the end of the Cold War between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, the crisis of nuclear war was believed to have disappeared. However, even after the Cold War, India, Pakistan, China, and France have continued the development of nuclear weapons. The number of nuclear powers are still increasing, and the fear of nuclear war has not yet ended.

At present, there exist the incredible total of 23,000 nuclear weapons, which are said to be capable of annihilating the whole earth several times over. Under these hopeless circumstances, what we can do to aim for a nuclear-free world is to have concern about this issue, to deepen our understanding, to have discussions and to continue to advocate the elimination of nuclear weapons.
