feel of the season, namely ice and sparkle. The designer, Paolo Crepax, drew inspiration from his design's Finish namesake: the unique ice forms that emerge on the snowy fields of Scandanavia. Like snowflakes, each light is unique due to the intricate handiwork required for construction. </p> <p><img src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog-full-scale/blog/2011/12/09/kuk_light_01.jpg" alt="Design, kuk, light" title="Design, kuk, light" class="imagecache-blog-full-scale" /></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="650" title="Design, kuk, light" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/12/09/kuk_light_04.jpg?1323488743" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="364" title="Design, kuk, light" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/12/09/kuk_light_01.jpg?1323488775" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="1126" title="Design, kuk, light" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/12/09/kuk_light_02.jpg?1323488775" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="364" title="Design, kuk, light" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/12/09/kuk_light_03.jpg?1323488775" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/kuk-light-leucos-design-suits-season" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/kuk-light-leucos-design-suits-season#comments design finland industrial light Sun, 11 Dec 2011 05:12:25 +0000 wardandrews 3908 at http://design.org My Little Pop Icons by Mari Kasurinen http://design.org/blog/my-little-pop-icons-mari-kasurinen <p><a href="http://marikasurinen.com/" target="Mari Kasurinen">Mari Kasurinen</a>, an artist and sculptor in Finland, explores the concepts of beauty and customization through her art.</p> <p>Using My Little Ponies as blank canvases, she turns them into pop culture icons, many of which have defined and continue to define generations.
