Producks Design Studio together with Mika Barr, the creatives behind Ori, came up with this wonderful décor idea, that embellishes almost any type of space, creating a pleasant and delightful atmosphere. Ori stands for “folding” in Japanese and “light” in Hebrew. The whole idea of this lamp is that it can be folded and you can basically “define” its structure according to the printed pattern. If you choose to hang Ori somewhere in your garden, you will create a unique atmosphere. Just imagine a perfect summer evening on the terrace enjoying Ori’s fantastic glow.
The cloud-like light device can change its shape anytime. You just need to find that perfect spot for Ori and start “the transformation”. The interesting thing about it is that it creates a volume of light in a unique way. “Ori makes the user part of the process, giving him the opportunity to interfere in the final design and give it a unique shape. The shape can be changed time and time again. The light coming through the fabric also reveals the inner geometric structure printed on the inside of the fabric.”
It’s no surprise that our friends Down Under know how to get low when it comes to their living rooms. Designed by Georgia Ezra of G. A.B. B. E. Studio, the cool and contemporary Brighton Escape home is made a bit more comfy thanks to a dropped seating area lined with the same wood that accents the ceiling, walls and stairs. Located in Merida, Mexico, Casa Sisal‘s vast great room boasts a recessed sitting area that emphasizes its modern splendor by creating a symmetry with the home’s 3-sided infinity edge swimming pool.The best part? This opulent 2-bedroom home is available for rent for a mere $299 a night so that you can snuggle up there yourself.
Now it’s my turn to share some Decoist design advice with you! First up, we see a grouping of small items displayed on the DIY Round Shelf I created for a previous Decoist post. When deciding what to display, avoid overcrowding your shelf in terms of weight and height. For a small round shelf like the one displayed in the two images below, lightweight items are essential. Plus, smaller items allow the shape of the shelf to truly shine. Also consider what’s on display near the shelf you’re styling. An example is the open shelving featured in my kitchen tour. I’ve filled it with an array of teapots, coffee pots, cake stands, serving trays and more. So when it came time to style the shelving of the nearby garden window, I kept it simple. Just a few items did the trick, preventing the kitchen from being overwhelmed by “stuff”.
