NEW, Moooi Perch Light Branch; Perch Mooi Branch Lights

I've been looking for ages for a unique and artistic hanging lamp which I could hang above our family dining table until I found this new Moooi Perch Light Branch Brass Suspension Lamp for sale at Stardust Modern Design featuring Origami-Style folded Birds that are illuminated from within. Perch Light for Moooi, Branch, 2017.  Material: Synthetic paper, brass, steel A family of six sculptural lamps celebrate the beauty and poetry of a bird perched on a branch, rocking darkness away when set in motion. Crafted from paper in the form of an abstract bird sitting on a branch, these sunlit birds are free to swing when softly touched, gently glowing and bringing along the promise of spring. The Perch Light family for Moooi launched at Salone del Mobile, Milan in 2016.

NEW, 1945 Plywood "EAMES Vitra Elephant", Eames Elephants

Eames Original-Vitra Plywood designed Elephant from Stardust. This Vitra Eames Plywood Elephant in American Cherry has been released as a re-edition of the original Charles & Ray Eames Plywood Elephant 1945 design - which never actually went into production. One prototype was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1946 and still survives in the Eames family archive. After a limited edition plywood version in 2007, Vitra has now launched serial production of the Eames Elephant in plywood with this American Cherry wood finish for the very first time. Here's how it looks in the living room next to an Akari lamp and Prouve Cite relaxer:

This reintroduction of one of Eameses greatest designs presents an opportunity to buy a piece of design history. Designers: Charles & Ray Eames. Year of Design : 1945/2017. Dimensions : H: 41.4cm; W: 41cm; L: 78.5cm. Made in Germany. 

 Renowned designers Charles and Ray Eames originally penned this playful design in 1945, having been charmed by the majestic elephant's role in children's stories and mythology. This original design was first created in plywood, but never made it into mass production. Decades later, the Eames elephant is now available for the first time in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for: children. Whether used as a toy outdoors and in, or simply a decorative piece in your child's room, this cuddly companion is sure to provide inspiration and delight.
