There’s something to be said for good design (which sorta goes without saying since that is essentially the mantra of this very blog). When designers collaborate (even from different disciplines), special things happen… as is the case with this awesome lamp. The collection, which consists of several different colored lamps that project the celestial constellations of the Northern Hemisphere’s two equinoxes and solstices onto nearby walls and ceilings, was born from the collaboration between Hungarian graphic designer Anna Farkas and Hungarian interior designer Miklós Batisz. What originally began as an art piece by Farkas, the Starry Light collection is now for sale after almost a year of product development, and they are manufactured by hand. What a simple and special idea executed so beautifully.

Japanese born artist Kumi Yamashita is a true master of manipulating light and shadow. Her stunning work utilizes a single light source to bring each piece to life. Yamashita was commissioned by American Express to create an origami wall installation of portraits of 22 employees. And, more recently, her shadow work Untitled (Child) was featured in a Smithsonian Museum exhibit in Washington D.C., and now travels nationally and internationally. Also be sure to check out her Constellation portraits.
