  For many, being a patient in or a visitor to a hospital is not a happy experience, much less one that would be described as creative, inspiring, or visually stimulating. But the Cleveland Clinic and other healthcare facilities are working to change that. “I want this to feel like MoMA,” Toby Cosgrove, MD, CEO […]

Posted on:May 8th, 2014 by global lighting

  There are a fortunate few who make it into the pages (and, ahem, on the cover) of Anna Wintour’s Vogue magazine. I’ll skip the pop-culture power-couple everyone was talking about in and on the April issue, and share the interesting design mention I saw within its pages, namely Henzel Studio, a Swedish producer of […]

Posted on:March 4th, 2014 by global lighting

Thinking, and Creating, Inside the Box | 
Posted on:January 16th, 2014 by global lighting

My reaction to this short film calls to mind the fascination of young children and cats with cardboard boxes.  Though Box began the same way—as empty space and imagination—the creative […]

Posted on:January 14th, 2014 by global lighting

We often speak of light as art, but a light bulb as art? When it is hand crafted from wood—and actually emits light—a light bulb is art, indeed! Thirty-four year-old Japanese artist Ryosuke Fukusada, recently named by New York Magazine to their “Twenty-One Under 35” list of young product designers, won the Kyoto Renaissance design […]

Posted on:December 5th, 2013 by global lighting

  We first came across artist Sebastian Errazuriz in January when New York City design gallerist Cristina Grajales put him on our radar (you may remember we posted his Duck Lamp on the Global Lighting Facebook page and drew quite a few comments given its edginess!). I was excited to know the Chilean-born, New York-based […]
