Design Spotlight
Tuesday 10/1

1. The Mercer Desk by Modloft features a writing surface that cantilevers out from a pedestal of drawers. This shape reduces it's footprint while creating something structurally interesting.

2. The Gayalux Lamp by Xiral Segard creates a floating illusion by taking a heavy concrete ball and creating a thin slice through it. The gap in between is then lit to enhance the effect.

3. The Frosted MarTini by Highwave is a double-walled glass that suspends its contents in the inner wall. It's a simple trick that also acts to insulate the drink and keep it cool (or warm).

4. The ZERO Chaise by Nolen Niu uses a single steel support at a dramatically oblique angle to obtain its gravity-defying effect. It's visually stunning while remaining structural integrity.

5. The Orbit by XD design is an oil & vinegar set where the outer oil chamber completely surrounds the inner vinegar chamber. Put a dark liquid in the inner chamber and it appears suspended.

6. The 2496 Chaise by Giovanni Pagnotta uses carbon fiber to create this engineering marvel. The single contoured panel of carbon fiber touches the ground at both ends for a lighter-than-air look.
