BalKonzept – Table & Planter for balconies

BalKonzept

Life in the city makes us dream about an “outside space”. Very often there is just a small balcony without space for a table. With BALKONZEPT it is finally possible to invest the small balcony. No matter the size of your balcony it settles directly on the balustrade. In the receptacle it is possible to plant flowers and aromatic grasses, or to fill it with ice for the champagne.

Lumio – Folding Book Lamp

Lumio_Folding_Book_Lamp

The name Lumio is inspired by the idea of an illuminated book. The light turns on when you open the cover and turns off when it’s closed. Lumio illuminates when you need light and stows away compactly when unused, ideal for modern living. Adjust the lamp as your lighting needs change throughout the day. Use it as a table lamp, a wall sconce, ceiling pendant, ambient lighting, outdoor lighting or come up with your own unique ways to use Lumio.

Philips Wake-Up Light

Philips_Wake_Up_Light

The new cool Philips Wake-Up Light more or less simulates the sun right in your very own bedroom each morning to naturally awaken you from a peaceful slumber. This innovative lamp slowly simulates an actual sunrise 20 to 40 minutes before an alarm of five different nature sounds begins to awaken you naturally for an improved mood and energy level. It features the colored sunrise simulation that gradually brightens from red to orange to yellow, a dimming, sunset-simulating light mode to help you fall asleep, and doubles as a bedside lamp with 20 different brightness settings. Best of all, unlike the sun, this one has a snooze button and anything is better than being jarred awake in the dark by obnoxious alarms beeping and usually even before the real sun even rises.

As if from Nowhere Bookcase

We love smart storage solutions, and this bookcase by Orla Reynolds definitely fits the bill. Many of us like to have table and chairs in the living room, but sometimes we find the problem that the room is so small between the sofa, coffee table and bookcase with TV cabinet almost does not fit all. Brightly coloured tables and chairs are hidden in plain sight between the shelves of this bookcase by graduate designer Orla Reynolds. They easily pull out from the bookcase when needed and the two purple tables can be placed together to form a larger dining table.
