Cube Collection from Tom Dixon

Strategic placement of these office tools will signal to the world that you mean business, as the heavy cube-like tools don't mess around. They're functional, of course, but they're also "stripped of superfluous details." Pretty serious, huh?

Jeeves Valet

I'm sure we could play a quick guessing game as to what the above item might be, but let's jump to its purpose: it's a valet. A clothes valet, in case you are unaware, is usually a waist-high wooden stand of questionable aesthetic value that provides a hanging spot for oft-worn items that are wrinkle prone, like a favorite suit jacket. Now, this Jeeves Valet is functional, beautiful, and weird (...Read more

Well, what do we have here? It's a very simple pendant that uses the light bulb as support for the shades. Aluminum disks diffract the light and trick your eye with reflections of its environment. Does it remind you a little of the Grain Pendant by Brendan Ravenhill? It's the same sort of idea, and a little more affordable at that.
