When was the last time you stepped into a phone booth? If you’re under 30, you might not even be aware that phone booths used to be on nearly every street corner as a means to contact your parents after the football game or call a taxi after dinner. Of course, there are those scenes from the original Superman that might jog your memory. Once cell phones became mainstream, the empty phone booths became easy fodder for graffiti, pollution and public urinal use. But while the era of the phone boot...

Conversation Piece: Alice

As with most things Edra, Alice is a functional piece of furniture—and so much more. Designed by Jacopo Foggini, Alice does indeed provide a place to sit but its appeal depends more on its artistic quality: Alice resembles a molded pile of spaghetti solidified by ectoplasmic glue. Constructed of polycarbonate monocoque using a technique in which plastic ropes are “applied manually with artistic gestures,” Alice is intended for both indoor and outdoor use. And, in case its shape and texture are ...

LED lighting company aims to bring a little 'friluftsliv' into our hectic lives

No matter what stresses you deal with on a daily basis, the practice of reconnecting with nature is always beneficial. Scandinavians call this connection ‘friluftsliv’ (pronounced free-loofts-liv). Literally translated to “open-air living,” the term refers to the value of spending time in remote natural locations in order to rejuvenate ourselves, mentally and physically. Of course the problem is that our daily schedules are not always conducive to taking a nature-based break. As a solution, a f...

New Product Alert: Tala LED Lighting in London

A group of friends at the University of Edinburgh came up with the idea for lighting company Tala while working a summer job together (they were installing solar panels on the roof of an eco-conscious winery in Portugal). One friend suggested that the architect specify LED lighting to add to the project’s eco-cred, but the architect balked due to a lack of good-looking options on the market. After a years-long exploration into production processes and lighting technology, the four founders launc...
