Fake Reflections

Have you ever had that "oh, I wish i had come up with that!" moment? It's bittersweet: you admire the simple grandess of someone else, at the same time you acknowledge your lack of it. Here are two pieces that remind me of each other (Front's was first), and both provoked me that pinch in my stomach:

Daniel Rybakken's Daylight emitting table:

Daniel is a recent MA graduate from Fine Art and Desing at HDK (Gothenberg). This absolute genius table projects the fake reflection of a window on the floor, giving the impression of a brighter day and of more windows. He claims it might help counter Seasonal Affective Disorder. Find out more about his work here.

Front's Reflection cupboard:

Front is an all-women design studio that has managed to put rather conceptual design on the mainstream eye. Whilst some pieces might be a bit of a shocker (remember the horse lamp for MOOOI, anyone?), other are just magnific. And this one is eerie and fascinating: the reflection shown on the doors of the cupboard is an illusion. It's not a lack of expertise of the photographer: it's the buzzing imagination of the designers. All cupboards come with this reflection. More on Front here.
