Based in Mexico, Masiosare Studio aim for functional and accessible design. Flaca, which is Spanish for skinny, is a lamp they designed that meets both of those goals.It is an extremely lightweight lamp made from a single piece of laser-cut stainless steel, which means very little waste. The piece is easy to assemble in just five steps and requires no tools other than your bare hands. The LED light sticks permanently to the lamp with tape and requires only 6 watts, which is 10% of today’s regular bulbs. The lamp is adjustable in height and ships flat packed in 100% recyclable cardboard. Clever.

The Museum of London phone app named Streetmuseum is pretty sensational. Users can hold their iPhone or Android camera to hundreds of London streets, sights and landmarks and receive detailed images on what they’re looking at in decades gone by. Want to see what Carnaby Street looked like at the height of its fame? Streetmuseum can show you. Interested in the grimy wharfs of Victorian London? Hold up Streetmuseum and the plush media offices decay into aged filth.
Im off to London to give it a try.
See The Museum of London for more info.

Vadim Kibardin black and white clocks epitmizes minimalism, stripping the object to its bare essentials.
“Digital clock: only figures, no case, only the necessary – only accurate time. Each figure has self-contained power supply and independent control, it can be fixed to any surface autonomously. A light sensor will switch the clock to an invert mode: the figures are white in the dark time of day and black at daytime.”
