These images are of a hanging lamp shade designed by Benjamin Hurbert. The lamp called Tenda, meaning tent in Italian, is made of fiberglass rods for kites, Lycra used for sportswear and a synthetic mesh fabric used for underwear. Combined together makes for a very cool lamp.

I love the fresh and rustic look of their work.
Things I love about Paris:
1. Parisians – their style, attitude and cool pace to living a big city life.
2. The Eiffel – because I’m an architect and because it’s a piece of structural lace that lights up a smile every time it sparkles.
3. The art of masters, of rebels and of the street.
4. Cafes that know how to make tea and croissants.
5. The windows and the shutters – because they are big enough to lounge in.
6. The fashion – on the street and in the stores – its all so sexy.
These images are of a very cool design for an adjustable light by designer Peter Toronyi and was inspired by the light and shadow effects of the solar eclipse. The light panels are held together by magnets and can be rotated around their pivot points…the effect of which either casts a shadow or intensifies the light.
Since it’s Fashion Week in New York, the online world has been all about the collections, the designers and the front row. So in the midst of all things beautiful and overtly luxurious and expensive, it was refreshing to see Imagine Fashion post and re-post some candid interviews with people who create some of the most amazing work that isn’t a Valentino Gown or a VB suit but is still a large part of the fashion world.
