Mercury Light by Ross Lovegrove

A ceiling fixture that places a floating assembly of large pebbles below a simple aluminium disc. These in turn reflect each other, bouncing light between their taught biomorphic surfaces and reflecting the environment around them. During the day the piece acts as a sculptural object reflecting the dynamics of natural light and the movement of people around them.

Oggetti Lenti by Pierre Charpin

Vases are part of the collection “oggetti lenti” (Slow Objects), in reference to the slowness with which Pierre Charpin designed them. “They are present while seeming detached from this world, they are both concrete and abstract, their presence is simultaneously concise and undecided. The “Oggetti Lenti” occupy an indeterminate place between what already exists, what is still unfamiliar to us. These “Slow Objects” gradually find their place in the uncertainty of our present time.”

Oggetti Lenti, by Pierre Charpin, for Design Gallery Milano

Dr. Yes by Philippe Starck & Eugeni Quitllet

Dr. Yes is a counterpoint to Dr No. The inner part of the chair has an opaque finish, almost resembling a soft fabric, while the surface of the back and the legs is glossy. The distinguishing features of the chair are its comfort, ease of cleaning and wide range of colours.
