What does it look like when art, design and theoretical science collide? Something like these 3D printed pendant lamps by Nervous System that we recently found on Velhetica. The detail is mesmerizing:
Built using a computer program that models nature's complex process of patterning such everyday things as animal's fur or a fish's scales, these designs show an extraordinary amount of depth. A video shows the process in animated form:

With new fabrication techniques and advanced optics such as multi color LED lights, we can expect more sophisticated pendant lamp styles in the years to come.

Unexpected design is the best design. It’s always an exciting moment when your guests are oohed and awed by your space. One secret weapon is a gallery wall. Collections of art create beautiful moments in a space. One room that you don’t expect to see art is in the bathroom. That’s exactly why you should try it! Especially in the powder room. You will be the talk of the town.
Above we see a clean bathroom space with a simple gallery. It feels modern and fresh. The colors in the art pieces flow together, giving it a very cohesive feel. The mirror and trim above the tile also stand out with the art wall.
This powder room is awesome and dramatic. The deep charcoal walls allow the white matting in the art pieces to pop. I’m loving how it’s an eclectic collection of art, posters and letters. In this case, more is better!
This is a great example of how a little detail can make a big impact. These small prints are water-falling down the mirror in such a delicate way. And to think, all it takes is pictures and tape. Easy peezy!
If you’ve ever wondered how to dress up your toilet area, add simple shelving, some great art and a few accessories to snazz it up. This is also a great option if you’re not wanting to do an entire gallery wall.

Location, location, location. So goes the adage for real estate, and it may as well apply to offices too. When it comes to recruiting top talent, modern office decor is one detail that Silicon Valley's top players are taking notice of these days.
Skype recently unveiled their new North American headquarters in Palo Alto, California. And this is one nice place to work. The office embodies the creative spirit of an internet start-up with ample open spaces...and Foosball tables!
Brand experience runs throughout the design, from the Skype "mug shots" in the lobby (pictured at the top of this post), to city maps on the lunchroom wall clocks, symbolizing the company's global reach.
One gets a sense from the minimalist desks, pocket "parks" and open seating dotting the interior that this is a paper-free, wireless office environment.
And this is the truth of the new economy, isn't it? Work is digital, collaborative and fun, which means offices should be bright, open spaces. The new Skype offices rely heavily on contemporary pendant lighting. Here's our homage to some of the predominant Skype styles:

If an environment of talent, innovation, and ultimately, dedication is what companies are looking for in the 21st century, it appears that office decor is part and parcel to fostering such a mindset.
Sometimes it's hard to find a modern table lamp style that is both modern and versatile. Well, Robert Abbey's Delta table lamp will look great in an entryway, bedroom, dining room or living space. And with all the colors, it's perfect for a family home or a bachelor pad!
