Silhouette and Eclipse lamps by Angela Jansen

The lamps bring us back at the traditional and maybe old-school look of the lamp but in the same time when you see the floating part and all the technologies used in it this is really piece of very modern lamp.

 The Silhouette lamp is consisted from handcrafted wooden base with a high glossy black finish. The power cable is also covered in black fabric to achieve a better look of the overall product. The other lamp is Eclipse is little more orientated to modernistic design. It consists of a hand-crafted glass foot for base. The lampshade is made to look like a drum and is finished in matt black. The light flows through the openings of the mirror which covers the lower part of the lampshade Both lamps levitate and in the same time emits light tanks to latest technologies and in particular the LED.

Concept car Alfa Romeo Pandion by Stile Bertone

This is the design of the concept car Alfa Romeo Pandion. The designer of the exterior is the well know car auto designer Stile Bertone. The car still not in mass production but there are already a couple of finished products that were shown and car expos and market presentations. The name of the car is very attractive and interesting - a genus Pandion birds with a single representative Osprey. Accordingly, Pandion was created in honor of the 100th anniversary of Alfa Romeo, but also will show the possible design guidelines for future development of the successor of the Alfa 159.

And although the designers of Stile Bertone may not agree, it seems there is a considerable similarity between Pandion and testimony last year concept BMW Vision Efficient Dynamics. Similarities can be seen in the grille, the excessive use of glass on the doors, and somewhat in overall shape of the car. The design is very modern and fresh. There is a big transparent sunroof at the top of the car, the doors also have big windows starting from the front wheel and ending to the rear wheels. The car look like a two seated but there is and back row of seats in if need to pick up more than two people.
