You will probably remember Dima Loginoff, a Russian designer hosted in Yatzer several times in the past. It seems that he has a lot to offer as more and more of his designs are presented through Design exhibitions or events. Well, get prepared because Dima strikes again with his latest concept.
If Design is a sin then we all – and that includes also Yatzer ‘s readers – need forgiveness and enlightenment. Can Bless you lamp be the kind of help that many people would need on that issue? Well, Dima’s new concept is not exactly an Indulgence unless you like to see it this way. If you focus - from a design point of view this time– you ‘ll be able to see further more than a Christian symbol. Open your eyes and then you may distinguish a refined, modern lamp designed through a minimalistic approach, so characteristic of Dima and also present in his previous creations. Apart from being trendy this lamp saves energy by using LED technology, which makes it another one of the many green projects that designers create around the world in an effort to respect -and why not? - save the planet.
Well, your prays have been heard. Now anyone can feel the blessing with just a click. In various colours and in cross shape the BLESS YOU lamp has just arrived as an original idea that will spread the light to everybody around the space. After all Religion has a lot to offer to anyone who is willing to see and accept the signs.
BLESS YOU LAMP has been awarded at DESIGN AND DESIGN INTERNATIONAL AWARDS in Paris and will be part of the DESIGN AND DESIGN YEARBOOK VOLUME THREE in 2010.
