A clever and relatively less space-demanding alternative to traditional bookshelves and cabinets, this neat book hanger has been devised by a Copenhagen-based furniture designer Jakob Jørgensen. Composed of a plain wooden mounting and a number of ‘sticks’ which can also double as bookmarks, ‘Poet’s Book Hanger’ was developed for Danish Crafts‘ MINDCRAFT12 exhibition which was organised on the occasion of Milan’s Salone del Mobile 2012 fair and showcased 16 new works by 12 contemporary Danish artists and designers.

'38' by Omer Arbel for Bocci; photo by Spencer Hung

Following his ’28’ series of pendant lamps, the Vancouver- based architect and designer Omer Arbel has realised this series of striking lighting elements for the Canadian lighting specialists Bocci. Employing a similar technique to that originally developed by Arbel for the ’28’ collection, in this series ‘large glass spheres are blown, and then a multitude of white cavities are introduced into them haphazardly,intentionally intersecting and colliding with each other .’ ’38’ was showcased in a special large-scale lighting installation during this year’s Salone del Mobile at Spazio Rossana Orlandi. Watch ’38’ being produced in the video below.
