Day and Night Light by Éléonore Delisse

Jocelyn Muir - Friday, August 28, 2015
Design student Éléonore Delisse created the Day and Night Light as part of her Design Academy Eindhoven graduation project. With a specially designed timepiece oscillating within a period of 24 hours, this lamp has the ability to rebalance our circadian rhythm. A dichroic glass rotates slowly above a lamp to create different colours. It generates a blue light in the mornings which has the effect of lessening melatonin production and stimulating wakefulness. In the evenings, a warm amber glow is cast which sets off melatonin production to make one feel drowsy and be softly sent off to sleep.

Annis Road by Scenario Architects

Jocelyn Muir - Friday, August 21, 2015

Scenario Architecture redesigned the ground floor level of this London terrace house for a young couple, in order for it to better suit their style of living. Previously the areas were dark and segregated, and were therefore hardly used. The wall beside the previously non functional fireplace was removed to allow for a passage and view into the kitchen area. The fireplace was replaced and is now not only functional but services both the reception area and the kitchen. A clever central island affords the couple extra room, with the ability for the kitchen table to be able to slide under and be stored within it. Large glass folding doors and a skylight optimise the natural light that streams into the house, creating a more spacious and light feel.
