The New Old Light by KIMU Design mimics the traditional appearance of a lantern and makes a classic East-West connection. The Taiwan-based studio have created the New Old Light with an industrial-style reflector attached to a paper lantern diffuser that can be pulled down or collapsed out of sight to vary the lighting intensity.
I adore the minimalist table lamp by the Taiwanese design studio. By employing the flat border to emulate the standard appearance of lanterns, The New Old Light by KIMU continued its style in the plane quadrant. With the modify of the wood proportion of The New Old Light, which developed the extension of breathing in a virtual space, the air particles seem to be paused at the moment of light on. The New Old Life is the ideal goal that KIMU keep trying and experimenting to reach. Started from The New Old Light, KIMU is combining and converting those ancient objects to modern life products.

Home tour | this quirky colourful family home in London was renovated by interior design studio Avocado Sweets. They made the house, which started as an open plan apartment, into a home without losing the feeling of space and while making sure the owner’s personalities come through in the design. I love the fabulous collection of vintage radios which is shown in their full glory as a wall feature set against striking yellow wallpaper.
Design studio Avocado Sweets re-configured the existing space to create a stunning kitchen and lounge area, turning the previous windowless kitchen into a walk-in wardrobe. They added an extra bedroom on the mezzanine and closed the space with stylish shutters for privacy, peace and safety. Two staircases were changed to broaden the living space and allow extra height.
