The colour temperature of this series of LED lamps by Rotterdam designer Arnout Meijer can be adjusted to create different moods throughout the day. He designed the Thanks for the Sun series in response to the need for light that fulfils different roles - providing bright white light for working and aiding concentration, and a warmer, more soothing hue to help people relax before bed. “When you think about a lamp design, you design everything but the light: you design the shade, construction, base, etc but in the end you just screw the light in,” Meijer told Dezeen. “I wanted to turn that around and let light play the main character. So I wanted to make a lamp series where the design and the shape was about the light.”
since the 4th edition in 1957, the são paulo biennial takes place at the pavilhão ciccillo matarazzo in the parque do ibirapuera. the pavilion was designed by a team lead by oscar niemeyer and hélio uchôa, and named after francisco (ciccillo) matarazzo sobrinho (1898-1977), the biennial’s founder. the three-storey building provides an exhibition space of 30,000 sqm.
East London design brand Hulger has launched a second design for its award-winning Plumen low-energy lightbulbs. The Plumen 002 produces a softer light than the original design that’s more suited to ambient lighting. Like the original Plumen design, the new product is a compact fluorescent bulb that replaces the usual prongs and whirls of a standard energy efficient bulb with a sculptural shape that means it looks attractive in light fittings where the naked bulb is left on display. The new design is a 7W bulb giving off the equivalent of a 30W incandescent light source and the low brightness means it doesn’t need shading.

The colour of light emitted by this lamp can be controlled using syringes filled with red, green and blue ink. Russian designer Taras Sgibnev developed the interactive product as a physical expression of the way red, green and blue light are used in digital interfaces to create a full spectrum of different hues. “The project represents the process of analogue to digital conversion of colours,” said Sgibnev. “As a result any colour can be generated through the RGB-based mixing system.”
