Black Hole Wall / Ceiling Lamp

Sometimes I help my husband Kyriakos with the diagrams in his physics papers. Surprisingly, he cares that the diagrams look at least somewhat elegant, rather than a mess of various line weights, shapes and colors. Once I saw the Penrose diagram in one of the papers he was reading. In this diagram the two crossing lines represent the horizon of a black hole, the point of no return beyond which time and space become inverted. The diagram was both visually and conceptually very appealing and the inspiration behind the black hole light. I look forward to seeing the light in Kyriakos' office ... and hear what his colleagues say when they see it.

AD + MONOQI design awards

We feel very honored to have won the first Architectural Digest and Monoqi award.

We have been impressed by the ambition of the organizers to create an award that seeks to honor design talents across the word, across different backgrounds and from recent graduates to more established designers.

We were honored to be part of both the 25 nominees and the 5 winners as we highly regarded all nominees and their exceptional work.

The jury consisted among others of Jochen Paesen of BMWi, Simon Fabich of MONOQI, Susanna and Alessio Minotti of Minotti, Dr. Michaela de Pury of De Pury De Pury and Oliver Jahn of AD.

The award ceremony was held in Berlin, in the beautiful private house (a former petrol station from the 1950s) of Galerist Juerg Judin.

We recently participated in the ‘WISHLIST’, a project initiated by Terence Conran, Benchmark and AHEC (American Hardwood Export Council). 10 well known personalities in architecture / design were asked to commission 10 ‘younger design talents’ to design a piece for them.

The participant teams were: Terence Conran and Sebastian Cox, Alison Brooks and Felix De Pass, Norman Foster and Norie Matsumoto, Zaha Hadid and Gareth Neal, Amanda Levete and Win Assakul, Allen Jones and Lola Lely, John Pawson and Atelier Areti, Alex de Rijke and Barnby & Day, Richard Rogers and Xenia Moseley, Paul Smith and Nathalie de Leval.

The project consisted of the young designers designing and making an object for their commissioner out of American hardwood. This object was to be something the commissioner always wanted, but never found to buy. Our ‘commissioner’ John Pawson was interested in a series of items that are essential interior fittings, such as doors, light switches, etc.

We spent a week at Benchmark making the pieces with the immense help of the fantastic Benchmark carpenters there. The result can be seen at the V + A until the end of October.

The collection ‘Room’ includes a door and door handle made of white oak, a shelf made of walnut, a light switch and hooks made of walnut.
