Inspired by origami, the Perch Light by London-based architect and designer Umut Yamac sits perfectly at the intersection of form and function. The paper-folded looking bird light is made from actual synthetic paper and illuminated from the inside. The elegant light is counterbalanced and rocks back and forth at the slightest touch or disturbance in the air. Yamac originally designed the light in 2014 as a limited edition of 20, but recently created a new chandelier-style configuration called the Perch Light Family for Moori. The family of six sculptural lamps celebrate the beauty and poetry of a bird perched on a branch, rocking darkness away when set in motion.
Posting photos online is quite normal those days. However, you might just be a “web celebrity” overnight beyond your expectation in a bit awkward way. And this can happen to cat too. It all started with a humorous meme picture of a lovely cat sitting like a human. People started doodling on the image to make it funnier. With just a few strokes of the pen, the cat is now skateboarding, soaring through the sky on a cloud, and giving Donald Trump a much needed hairstyle update. Those images are quite hilarious to us but maybe not for the cat itself if he/she can ever see them. See more of the doodling here.
Designed by Architecture firm XL-Muse, “Yangzhou Chongshuge”, a library located in Zhen Yuan, China, seamlessly blend modern architecture with traditional Chinese culture and is one of the most beautiful modern library I have seen. Arch bridge, an important designing element in this product is an indispensable traditional element used as a guiding factor of commerce, which will represent in the bookstore the connection between human and books throughout history. Besides that, the black mirrored glass floor and kids zone are also worth mentioning. Although more and more people start to read electronic book, I wouldn’t mind to have a relaxing paper book reading-time in the library like this. How would yo like this place?
