David Taylor

The lamp shown above, by designer David Taylor, is formed from three tubes, one folded and clamped together by a found plastic component to form a tripod. The shade is plastic, cannibalised from a fleamarket and houses a dimmable LED unit.

It is typical of the applied art objects and short series pieces designed by David for private collectors, museums and institutional collections, in his workshop and studio at MADE BY: in the Birkastan district of Stockholm, where he blends his curious and eclectic mix of exquisite silversmithing, junk aesthetics and elegance.

The iPhone is mounted in the dock of the walnut base and the sound is carried from a hole in the base, amplified by the metal Magnavox horn to fill the room.

Genesis Day One

I was in my local bike emporium this weekend when I fixed my eyes on this little beauty — the Day One from Genesis Bikes. A snip at only £499 it’s a nice, light, unpretentious little single speed that would be perfect for my daily commute.
