The product packaging and typography are all comprehensively considered in form and function – this is not a typical in-the-box retail object, but a simple black (or blue or red) on white approach. “The Pop-up corner light is delivered in an envelope. The lamp is constructed from a sheet of polypropylene. The sheet is cut and incised, in such a way to produce a square, triangular or circular module when folded at a 90° angle.

That's precisely what Russian visual artist Ruslan Khasanov was compelled to find out and so he decided to embark on a series of fun experiments to test his theory. His inspirations came whilst cooking one night, when he noticed the mixture of soy sauce and oil separating out into small black beads in his dish.

Green Village Green Village, founded by jewelry designer John Hardy and designed by his daughter Elora, is a community of sustainable and ecological houses sitting along the Ayung River in Bali.
