Fascinating Lamps by Calabarte | Pondly Calabarte is the pseudonym of a Polish artist named Przemek Krawczynski, whose art takes on a peculiar but incredibly beautiful form: cool lamps. The name itself is a portmanteau of two words – art (obviously), and calabash, the fruit that carries his imagination. The calabash is a bottle gourd originating in India, although Calabarte gets his supply from Senegal. Due to ancient domestication and usage, the bottle gourd has an incredibly tough outer shell. Due to the combination of dark, thick material with a light source within, the primary art of his work, however, shines in the dark. Hard work, beauty, an exceptional degree of detail and a marriage between mathematical geometry and a rampant imagination – all imprinted onto the husk of a Senegal calabash. Described as the art of light, Calabarte’s artistic tendencies truly took off in 2009, when he made his first gourd lamp, by chance of coming across a calabash. Website

Portal Turret LED Flashlight w/ Sound Original Furniture Set: 3D Coffee Table and Stools Martin Gallagher designed a coffee table set that we find clever and practical. Here is the press release we received from the project developers: “3D is a neat contemporary coffee table and stools based on solids and voids, cylindrical forms and modern architecture using high quality modern materials and vivid upholstery. Designed for modern living where space is of the up most importance, 3D is a modular piece of furniture. Its height and overall scale can be modified by adding or reducing the amount of plywood layers within the piece. The stools come upholstered in a wide palette of colors, but the option of having Birch plywood coloured seats is also available so that each stool can be used as side a table, therefore maximizing the design to its full potential“.

Add Your Comment Twelve South BookBook, 15-inch Hardback Leather Case for 15-inch MacBook Pro, Red: Electronics Bars As far as nightlife goes, in Porto, Portugal, it is all happening downtown. A local company, Baixa (baixa is Portuguese for downtown), has recently added another downtown nightclub to its roster that already includes the Baixa bar. The new nightclub, Instalação (installation), was designed by José Carlos Cruz Arquitecto, the same team responsible for the design of Baixa bar as well as the Farmacia Lordelo we have featured earlier. The space for Instalação, opened in March, was in essence a long, narrow corridor with two dividing structural arches that support the building itself. From this 250 square-meter (2,690 sq.ft.) space the designers created a golden wire tunnel where the main materials are concrete, brass and polished aluminum. Andy Warhol’s Factory inspired some of the ideas for the smaller VIP room, and Anish Kapoor’s ideas gave suggestions for the beautifully textured concrete ceiling – our favourite part of the entire project.
