Spritz Is A Collection Of Colorful Pendant Lights With A Textured Stucco Detail

Tel Aviv based designer Yuval Tzur has created Spritz, a pendant light with a simple geometric shape.

The lights have been named after the technique that’s used to apply a plaster mixture to homes and buildings, both interior and exterior.

The colorful textured effect on the pendant lights is created using the same technique, and is a mixture of acrylic, and a water-based material made of cement and glue.

By using this technique, the designer aimed to pay respect to a piece of nostalgic design that’s slowly disappearing from the world as design tastes change.

These Glass Vases Allow You To Watch Avocado And Oak Trees Grow From Seeds

These Glass Vases Allow You To Watch Avocado And Oak Trees Grow From Seeds

London based design firm Ilex Studio, has created these glass vases that allows you to watch an Avocado plant or an Oak tree grow from a single seed.

Pure and simple design, based on the principles of minimalism, timelessness, and functionality, allows the observation of the avocado seed as it matures, giving an insight into the plants’ first stages of life.

The designers have refined the traditional method of growing, skipping the toothpicks, and utilizing the opening of the vase to cradle the seed, keeping it dry as it sprouts and encouraging the roots to flourish freely.

The sinuously shaped vase magnifies the roots as they prosper, creating a perfect focal point to witness the plant as it develops.

In addition to the classic B&B Italia fabric and leather upholstery range, two new exclusive fabrics have been designed for Dock, with each of the armrests and seat cushions having elegant tone-on-tone stitching.

The comfortable soft padding creates a peaceful harbor, which can be further defined by the possibility to select from different depths and heights. There are three depths that can be combined with a 41 cm seat height, or with a lower 27 cm version which is almost ground level to create an far eastern style seat.
