Vilu Light Collection is part of the project The Space of our Objects: Why do objects? How are they involved in space? What do objects give us? Creating objects help us to create a minimum architecture. They participate in space, define it functionally and intensify situations. They allow us to transmit an idea, learn ways to make and test processes.
For us, in life we have no standard situations, so standards must be symbolic and non-standards additionally must be contextual. Vilu Lights has symbolic bounding edges based on origin curves. In this case inspired on the origin myth of the archipelago of Chiloé.
In southern Chile you may find several myths that explain the origin of all around…only one is related to its dismembered geography. It came after the great battle between two strong and powerful forces: Cai-cai Vilu, the spirit of the waters and Tren-tren Vilu, the protective and wise spirit. While one raised the level of the water, the other raised the level of the land. They fought till finding the balance that shaped the archipelago.
Vilu Lights suggest an action. The lighted space proposes a conversation between people and only those who participate in this action are embedded in the inner spatiality. Vilu Collection are light spaces that match traditional symbology and Digital Handcrafting. This is a collection of parameterized local myths to be brought to the world.

Made me look – light structure lamp by Ingo Maurer.
Fallen Tree, by French designer Benjamin Graindorge, is a striking piece of furniture that’s half tree, half bench. Nice.
Wood is a living material, the industrial tool I use as a designer has rationalized it, and it has become an effective material. The Fallen Tree bench is intended to reveal the wood’s DNA, to express its deepest nature by attempting to highlight the living fiber it is made of, I want to expose and bring it to life to reveal its primal identity: strong, indomitable and above all magnificent.
Net tables designed by Benjamin Hubert for Moroso are made by manipulating expanded steel, which is more commonly found on industrial equipment and architecture, to form cylinders and disks for the legs and tops.
In reference to its industrial origins, Net is purposefully geometric and simple in its design language. The tables have a large surface with expanded steel perforations that give a feeling of lightness while being small enough to not allow small objects to slip through.
Props Chair and Crate by Frederick McSwain are nice.
You may get me camping if i could stay in one of these Tree Tents by Luminair.
The Tree Tent concept is a culmination of over 3 years of work and research (and decades of experience) in sustainable shelter systems, fabric structures and tree top living. We wanted to develop a lightweight and efficient structure using sustainable, recyclable, recycled and natural materials. A structure that can be easily transported and assembled on-site with minimal, non-permanent impact on its environment. What we realized was a unique, hybrid aluminum and green ash static airframe combined with an expertly tailored 100% cotton canvas skin.
The spherical structure is 3m in diameter, sizable enough to comfortably accommodate two adults. 100% wool, winter thermal liners allow for all year round accommodation while wood stove, water and electric options offer the extra creature comforts.
Nice furniture collection from Earl Pinto, a Melbourne based design studio.

Lagrangian Point, a collection of new works from Kobe Design University’s design collective Design Soil.
In 1772, in the “Essay on the Three-Body Problem,” Joseph Louis Lagrange indicated the Lagrangian Point, a point exists in the space between the revolving two bodies that gravity and centrifugal force are balanced. A material put on this point keeps balancing and revolving without changing a relative position.
A calm stability is found in throughout the various forces crossing. Yet, not only in the astronomic subjects, it is able to be found in places where close to us.
The collection of, “Lagrangian Point” is the works produced by finding the equilibrium hidden behind the apparently unstable forces and structures.

This is magnificent – the beautiful Baker Cookstove has been carefully designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune for use in developing countries.
The majority of women in the developing world prepare food using a technology called a three-stone fire – three rocks that support a pot with an open fire in the middle. This cooking method is inefficient and leads to environmental and health problems. The redesign by Claesson Koivisto Rune sympathetically references the existing methods whilst providing an updated stove that burns wood as efficiently as possible, it only needs one third of the wood. The approach to increase functionality and usability whilst producing a product manufactured locally in Kenya using sustainable and recycled materials is fantastic and the result is a beautiful and functional piece of design.
This resin furniture and kitchenware collection by Canadian designer Martha Sturdy draws reference from the ocean, forests and rugged mountains of the Canadian west coast.
Each piece is an investment, in aesthetic and function. It is what keeps us connected with our selves and creates resolution in our designs – we admire nature most for the dichotomy of its resilience and delicate balance. This is reflected in the materials that are core to our brand; beyond being merely beautiful, our materials consider durability and are deeply connected to the elements.
