                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/chrona-celestial-led-pendant-series-graypants/chrona-graypants-16/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/chrona-graypants-16-810x540.jpg" alt="Chrona: A Celestial LED Pendant Series by Graypants" /></a>
                                Celestial phenomenon isn&#8217;t just reserved for the outdoors. To celebrate their 10th year in business, <a href="https://graypants.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Graypants</a> is debuting an entirely new product line to their existing lighting collection, the <a href="https://graypants.com/products/chrona/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Chrona</a> series, that&#8217;s inspired by the phosphorescent envelope found around stars. The new Chrona lights cast a diffused glow from the ring of warm light that encases the thin, spun brass or steel discs.
The series is available in different diameters ranging from 6 to 17 inches and can be hung horizontally or vertically. Because of its robust design, Chrona can be clustered together to create a stellar installation of constellations, or by itself as a singular star. To learn more about the Chrona series, visit Graypants.

                                <a href="https://supergoodthing.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Good Thing</a> will be debuting five new furniture and lighting products at this year&#8217;s <a href="http://www.icff.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">ICFF</a> launching next week. The collection includes a coffee table and bar stool designed by <a href="http://msds-studio.ca/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">MSDS</a>, a stackable side table by <a href="http://benkicic.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Ben Kicic</a> and <a href="http://jamiewolfond.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Jamie Wolfond</a>, a table lamp and sconce by <a href="http://www.ferreolbabin.fr/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Ferréol Babin</a>, and a large-scale pendant light by <a href="http://www.earnestly.org/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Earnest Studio</a>.
The 6063 bar stool by MSDS is a newly released bar height version of the original piece released last May. The piece combines traditional craftsmanship with sophisticated contemporary design. The 6063 coffee table (below) continues the design language of the original 6063 stool and maintains its lightweight construction. Lily Table, by Ben Kicic and Jamie Wolfond, is a lightweight and stackable side table constructed of aluminum. Due to its cantilevered silhouette, the side table can be easily pulled up against a sofa or lounge chair, providing the user with a mobile workstation or a

The Dina Is One Part Lamp, One Part Piggybank

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/dina-one-part-lamp-one-part-piggybank/moak-studio-dina-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/Moak-Studio-Dina-1-810x515.jpg" alt="The Dina Is One Part Lamp, One Part Piggybank" /></a>
                                Even at quick glance, it&#8217;s obvious the <a href="http://www.moakstudio.com/dina-lamp" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Dina</a> isn&#8217;t your everyday table lamp. Maybe it&#8217;s the lamp&#8217;s unusual bottom heavy dimensions that first draws curiosity, or perhaps the tactile temptation of its light wood pull switch jutting in contrast from its black base. Most likely, it&#8217;s the curious inclusion of a coin slot located at the top of the lamp shade that most piques interest. The sum is an interactive lamp conceived to convert coins into illumination, and also, curiosity into thoughtful consideration about the cost of convenience.

The Dina is turned off with a simple pull of its wooden sphere pull-switch, turning off the light and also dropping the coin into a savings receptacle (explaining the lamp’s unusual proportions).

The Dina lamp is the brainchild of Colombian MOAK Studio – a team whose playful outfit of household technology includes a lamp activated by breath and a radio with a

Paul Matter’s Flutter Lighting Is a Take on a Deconstructed Wall Clock

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/paul-matters-flutter-lighting-is-a-take-on-a-deconstructed-wall-clock/flutter-light-paul-matter-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/Flutter-Light-Paul-Matter-1-810x538.jpg" alt="Paul Matter&#8217;s Flutter Lighting Is a Take on a Deconstructed Wall Clock" /></a>
                                Just two years ago, New Delhi-based design studio <a href="http://www.paulmatter.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Paul Matter</a> launched their debut collection of lighting called <a href="https://design-milk.com/paul-matter-debuts-tango/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">TANGO</a> and now they&#8217;re back with a swing arm light named Flutter. The new series is the studio&#8217;s idea of a deconstructed clock that&#8217;s scaled back and left with only two arms.
The long rotating arms are attached to a vertical, wall-mounted spine that results in a minimalist yet oversized fixture. Flutter comes in three variations, each with two elongated arms that can be adjusted to wherever light is needed. They can be hung alone or with others to create a unique wall composition, as well as primary and secondary light.

                                To celebrate its 10th year, European design brand <a href="http://se-collections.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Sé</a> debuted <a href="http://se-collections.com/collections/collection-iv/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Collection IV</a> with California-born, Switzerland-based designer <a href="http://www.designbyini.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Ini Archibong</a> four years after the successful launch of Collection III by Nika Zupanc. They chose <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/milan-design-week/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">Milan Design Week</a> to unveil 11 pieces of the 22-piece collection, entitled &#8216;Below the Heavens’, which happens to be the designer&#8217;s largest collection to date.
The sculptural collection aims to evoke feelings of serenity by referencing “the threshold between heaven and earth,” much like the overall ethos of the brand. Archibong incorporates soft palettes and scaled-back forms with rounded edges offering an inviting feel. While Sé is already known for use of luxury materials, Archibong reimagined them through simple silhouettes and unexpected details that result in a new notable series of work Sé will proudly produce. From Ini Archibong:
To me, Sé occupies a special place in the spectrum of luxury furniture. This collaboration feels like a perfect
