‘M. Lamp’ by David Irwin for Juniper

Young, Northern Ireland-born designer David Irwin has collaborated with a recently-established Brooklyn-based furniture label Juniper on this series of reduced, transportable table lamps. Simply called ‘M. Lamp’, the design was inspired by the lamps used by the 19th-century miners in England and is made of aluminium and powder-coated steel. Available in either white, black or orange, the light will be officially launched later this month (19 – 22 September) during London’s 100% Design. (more…)

One of Takeshi Miyakawa's 'I LOVE NY' light sculptures which were intended to promote NY Design Week 2012

Earlier last Saturday (19 May 2012), while trying to display his love for New York, the city which for the past 23 years has been his hometown, via a new light sculpture installation, the renowned Brooklyn-based designer and artist Takeshi Miyakawa was arrested for reportedly ‘planting false bombs.’ Inspired by the iconic I LOVE NY plastic shopping bags, the designer intended to install the light ‘around the city in trees and on lamp posts as part of NY Design Week 2012.’ Following his arrest, a judge has decided on Sunday to hold Miyakawa for a mental evaluation, extending his detainment for an additional 30 days.

indeterminate nature and is seemingly devoid of the aforementioned ‘definite function’ altogether? Well, it could either be a poorly engineered device, or the good old Rube Goldberg machine, whose most recent rendition by a Brooklyn-based kinetic artist Joseph Herscher has caught our attention. In the 2.08-minute clip, which has been watched by more than 5 million YouTube viewers since late December 2011, Joseph is seen seating by a table, ready to enjoy a perusal of a daily newspaper. Then he takes a sip of coffee…
