Lovely paper collages by Robi Jõeleht. A graphic designer and illustrator based in Estonia. More of his inspiring work here.Via Little Paper Planes.
A neat way to tear old things apart, a way of seeing well-known objects in a new disguise? Well actually it's more a study of space. Artist J.Frede had realized that usable space in furniture was actually negative space or a void, and by rearranging the negative space, usability is directly affected. In a sense by moving the nothing he could destroy everything needed and negate their intent in the process. This shifting of surface and space concurrently shifts its purpose and reason resulting in a something less than a shadow of its previous self. Via Lustik.

Lovely paper constructions, folded and photographed by German artist Christiane Feser from the series Latente Konstrukte and Objekte. Her images are not abstract, but rather portray something that represents abstraction, which recalls certain works of abstract art. But nothing is being represented here — because while something built in reality forms the departure point, it never existed in that form; what we see only “exists” in the picture. Cool!

Lovely material research project by Dutch designer Roos Gomperts. Uhmm – love the colours and the contrast between the two materials. They are each others visual and physical opposites — the one often used to protect the other. By treating the glass and foam as equals, both materials enhance each other and gain new meaning.

Those are some of the names of the stricking beautiful lighting by Brooklyn based Bec Brittain. Her designs draw upon a varied professional and educational background of architecture, philosophy, and product design; the work brings those different themes together, shaping the complexity to arrive at a new clarity. Located in Red Hook, Brooklyn, her studio focuses primarily on high-end lighting and prioritizes manufacturing locally. Love the slender design and the material used – must have one ... or two.
