Hanging Light, from Lukas Peet, is a pendant light, available in either pale textured yellow or 24 karat gold leaf finish, that literally hangs from its electrical cord. When illuminated the colour of the yellow or gold is added to the soundings.
This 2010 project by Griffin Enright Architects has a gorgeous concrete exterior and urban landscape. There is an outside deck that serves as an extension to the landscape and a pool that sits alongside the house. There are also two porches which protect the interior from harsh sunlight in summer and allow more light during winter.
“In the winter of 2011, photographer and furniture designer Ana Kraš flew from her home in Belgrade, Serbia, to Los Angeles, where she’d been sent by a European magazine to photograph artist-musician Devendra Banhart. Within five minutes, he asked her to marry him. Despite her initial impulse to flee, she stayed—and the two have been together ever since.”
By using strings to suspend objects in midair, French photographer Cerise Doucède is able to create dream like images frozen in time. Finding inspiration in normal day to day tasks, the mundane nature of the scene is juxtaposed with the encapsulating fantasy world swirling around the subjects. Cerise also deliberately leaves the strings in shot and visible to the viewer, she does this to maintain a connection between reality and the surreal moments captured.
