Mimi wall support was created by Claudio Bitetti for Minotti Italia. Functionally speaking, it’s just a shelf on which you can pile books or other stuff. Artistically speaking, it’s a fine piece of art that combines structural mechanics and creative design. Fix the pair of aluminum hands close to each other at the same level and you’ll have a strong and durable shelf to support a big pile of books or a large and heavy container.

Delightfull Lamps as a Lighting Theather in NYC

New York City is the stage for people and brands to shine. History as been written by amazing ideas and concepts that make NYC the spotlight for several new concepts.

Design is no exception, but today we’re going beyond that and talk about a lighting theather project covered by NY Times.

The Paramound Hotel was the stage of a lighting strike by two of the best architects of their generation: Will Meyer and Gray Davis. They themselves “maniacs” about the lighting in the spaces they design. Whenever is possible they often choose a pendant light — something that can be seen in the interiors of the Paramount Hotel and the restaurant Harlow in New York, projects recently completed by their firm, Meyer Davis Studio.

Pendant fixtures have so many functions, Mr. Davis, 50, explained. “We like the sculptural aspect,” he said. And “they can be the focal point of a room, or can bring intimacy to a space.” And in hotel projects, he added, “We use them on each side of the bed, which frees up space on bedside tables.” Accordingly to the NY Times article.

Among their favorites are the hanging fixtures designed by Isamu Noguchi in the 1950s, which they have in their own homes. So they were excited to see Issey Miyake’s IN-EI lamps, a contemporary version of that classic design, artfully arrayed in the window at Artemide, in SoHo.
