Icon: The Bulthaup B3 Kitchen

Light in Design, the B3 system by bulthaup is the measure of all kitchens; by focusing on ergonomics, task management and keeping it utilitarian, the visual aesthetics are not compromised here. The entire kitchen “floats” by using a supporting frame inside the wall that can bear up to one ton in weight per meter. This is ideal for architects and designers, providing them with an unprecedented level of freedom in design and the efficient use of space. The range of accessories and the way in which spices, tools and even cleaning supplies are tucked away compliment the design. You may never dine out again!

Palm Chandelier Rapid Prototype by Janne Kyttänen

Inspired by the connection between mathematics and the laws of nature, such as the Fibonacci sequence of numbers, Janne Kyttänen has also created a collection of lighting designs. The Palm Chandelier is a good example of this collection. It follows the growing pattern of the foliage in a palm tree and it is composed of 38 individual small Palm lights combined together to form a chandelier.
