Sol Smart Light

The Sol Smart Light is now up for grabs and is quite an interesting item. Designed and developed by American giant GE, this smart device can assist you in a varied number of things thanks to its connectivity with the popular Alexa assistant. So as itís clearly stated in its name itís a lamp, a quite nice one so it seems, it could very well have come out of Kubrickís 1984 movie, should we hear Halís voice we wouldínít be surprisedÖbut itís Alexa we hear and we can ask her to play a song, order dinner or read us the news to keep up with this fast paced world. Amazonís assistant will also tell you the time, turning the ring shaped lamp into a classic clock lighting the hours and minute pointer, you may also control the lightís temperature manually, from a warm yellow to a more productive sharp white to get work done. An interesting take on an otherwise overlooked object. watch the video below

FADEOUT CHAIR | BY NENDO

This is a very cool idea by Nendo, the appropriately named "Fadeout chair" has legs that seem to gently disappear s though the chair stands in a pool of mist or fog. The chairís back and seat are wooden, and the clear acrylic legs are specially painted by craftsmen so that the wood grain appears to gradually fade away. Very clever...
