product https://design.org/tags/product en The Pil: And Artistic Pendant by Designtree https://design.org/blog/pil-and-artistic-pendant-designtree <p>The Pil pendant lamp was dreamed up by New Zealand-based product-design studio <a href="" target="Designtree">Designtree</a>. It's an object that is both functionally and visually beautiful. They reference the pill shape and form, but the lights feel warm and modern instead of edgy and alternative. </p> <p>The lights are crafted with hand-turned logs from the Southland forests of New Zealand, and artisan blown glass forms the LED-lit dome, marrying "old-school craftsmanship with cutting-edge ... lighting technology to produce a beautifully rich sculptural piece."</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="465" title="Design, pil, light" alt="" src="https://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/11/pil_designtree_01.jpg?1331533071" /> </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="465" title="Design, pil, light" alt="" src="https://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/11/pil_designtree_02.jpg?1331533107" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="465" title="Design, pil, light" alt="" src="https://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/11/pil_designtree_03.jpg?1331533108" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="465" title="Design, pil, light" alt="" src="https://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/11/pil_designtree_04.jpg?1331533108" /> </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="https://design.org/blog/pil-and-artistic-pendant-designtree" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://design.org/blog/pil-and-artistic-pendant-designtree#comments design industrial light new zealand product Mon, 12 Mar 2012 06:22:16 +0000 jessicapatterson 4148 at https://design.org The Dollar Shave Club: A Back to Basics Business Plan and Web Design https://design.org/blog/dollar-shave-club-back-basic-business-plan-and-web-design <p>Not only does the <A href="http://www.dollarshaveclub.com/" target="Dollar Shave Club">Dollar Shave Club</a> promo video make us laugh, but their web site is pretty spiffy too.
