With her award-winning project ‘Pull-Over’, realised with the support of VIA (Promotion of Innovation in Furniture) in 2008, the Israel designer Bina Baitel presented a higly inventive floorlamp which is characterised by a luminous skin made from micro-perforated optical fibers connected to LEDs, passing through a layer of translucent silicone.

'Lisse', Inspired by tulip fields, by Liz Eeuwes

'Lisse', inspired by tulip fields, by Liz Eeuwes

Liz Eeuwes is a Canadian designer based in Glasgow, Scotland. Since graduating with a degree in Product Design from the Glasgow School of Art, Liz has set up a home studio in order to develop her own designs.

Her first collection is a range of artistic, textured rugs inspired initially by the rich colours and diverse structures of the Scottish countryside. Recognising the similar visual effects of rugs and aerial views of landscapes, Elizabeth began experimenting with various pile heights, hand knotting, weaving, colouring and carving techniques in order to accurately capture the look and feel of these areas.
