Comments Off on Asia Pia?cik’s Sugarcloud Lamp Takes Inspiration from Traditional Polish Crafts

Polish designer Asia Pia?cik ‘s Sugarcloud Lamp takes its inspiration from a sweet recipe inspired by traditional Polish crocheting techniques. Here, white cotton is first crocheted and then stiffened with a simple solution made up of water and sugar. The technique dates back to a time when Poles would make crocheted decorations for their  Christmas trees, but Pia?cik  modernizes the method by magnifying her forms. We originally spotted this beautiful design, amongst others, at last month’s  Milan Design Week . + Asia Pia?cik Photos by Katherine Pascucci for Inhabitat and Asia Pia?cik Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Australian design , bamboo veneer , DIY , Edward Linacre , green lighting , green materials , interlocking , Melbourne Movement , Milan Design Week 2013 , Milan Furniture Fair , recycling / compost , The Nest Lamp

Comments Off on $1.6 Million Worth of Rat Meat Passed Off as Lamb in China

The horse meat scandal spread through Europe like wildfire in early 2013, and now consumers in China may have even more to worry about. Officials were horrified to discover $1.6 million worth of rat meat being passed off as lamb, and police have apprehended 63 suspects who are being accused of selling rat meat for public consumption. The rat meat scandal is China’s latest food safety debacle – previously a citizen died from eating pesticides in lamb, and thousands of dead pigs were found dumped into a river near Shanghai.

Comments Off on Three Wise Men Combine Wood, Craft and an LED into One Lamp

Three Wise Men are a group of lovely wooden lamps handcrafted into different sizes and shapes. Designed by Hong-Kong-born, UK-based Samuel Chan for his own brand Channel , they give off a warm and focused shine thanks to the use of an E27 LED bulb. The lamps were crafted from solid American white oak and American black walnut and given a slender bottle-like top. The series takes its name from the group of men who (according to the Bible) visited Jesus when he was born—we however spotted them hanging at this year’s  Milan Design Week. + Channel Photos by Silvia Perfetti for Inhabitat and Channels Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “energy efficiency” , American black walnut , American white oak , Channel , green lighting , handmade , lamps , Milan Design Week 2013 , Milan Furniture Fair , Samuel Chan , Wood , wooden lamps
