Available in ceiling, suspension, wall, table and floor versions, the Hippo lamp series, designed by Paris based studio, A+A Cooren for Vertigo Bird, uses a special fixture in which the lamps are attached on a magnetic spindle. The rounded glass volume with the reflective metal calyx stays stable by the pull of magnetism.
This morning I had to bury our Russian Blue cat Odie, after he was knocked down in the small hours of last night.
He was such a loving, sweet-natured, beautiful, beautiful boy; Odie was special and his loss is going to leave a big hole in our family.
Sweet dreams li’l chap. :’(

These glass bowl wall lamps, from Tom Dixon‘s Pressed Glass series of shades, are made in industrial plants more commonly used to manufacture architectural products including car head lamps or glass insulators.
Each shade in the collection is created by compressing molten glass into a hollow mould which is then annealed in a kiln to form a robust object.
