WE LOVE :: It's a bulb, but not as you know it

Look! It's a bulb, but not as you know it...This clever, little lamp is shaped like a giant light bulb and houses a, erm, lightbulb.

Designed by Barend Hemmes, it's made out of laser cut wood which leaves a crisp burned edge and creates a satisfying, waffle like glow.

Can be hung from your ceiling or laid on its side, whatever tickles your fancy, the Wooden Bulb provides not only light but a little bit of tongue-in-cheek humour to any room.

A Day in the Life :: Eat Green Design

Elodie and Luke from iscd were the guests of Inside Out Magazine for a breakfast at Eat Green Design – part of Sydney Design 09.

Eat Green Design is a dining experience, sustainable temporary exhibition and theatrette that features bio-dynamic and organic food and is a space for ideas on sustainable practices in design.

The concept was designed by Cilla Madden from Collaborate while the space was designed by award-winning architect Hannah Tribe and Tribe Studio architects. It also showcases a selection of innovative, sustainable products from independent and emerging eco-designers around Australia including Design By Them, Toby Horrocks, Lightly, Spaceleft and ISM Objects.

The project itself serves to investigate, uncover and make transparent the ‘whole-systems’ behind design while demonstrating that sustainability not only does not compromise design aesthetic or value, but adds a level of sophistication to the design agenda.
