Light Facet, a gorgeous wall hanging/room divider/sculpture by Mireille Meijs. The diamonds can be moved to create new shapes, light and shadows.

Corrugated cardboard toy, City in a Box by Patricia Weusten lets children decide how colourful each metropolis can be. The city can be put away easily as the buildings and monuments fit together like a puzzle when folded up.

Christmas trees for the unsentimental with a sense of humour. One Pop-out Tree can be placed neatly in a corner, two against a wall, three for the full tree experience. By Simeon van Tellingen.

Wieland Vogel‘s beautiful halo-like hanging lamp which can be expanded and contracted. At its widest, it looks like a halo, creating a very ethereal look. I love the juxtaposition of the lightness of the lamp (no pun intended) with its very industrial materials.

Pump Up chairs by Nacho Carbonell that inflate friendly companions as you lounge. It’s super cute how the animals deflate when you get up off the chair…shrinking with loneliness.
