This year at Maison & Objet 2017, japanese artist Yukiko Morita showcases her latest innovative product, ‘Pampshade’ — a handmade lamp made from real bread. having perviously been a baker, her love of bread has been the motivating drive for the project. The ingredients used in the lamp include flour, salt, yeast, LED lights and batteries, which are then coated with a layer of resin to protect the bread from decaying. (via Designboom)

If the sight of the Pac-Man ghosts doesn’t get your heart rate going ever so slightly, then maybe the music will? It makes my pulse race and my hands get into arcade grip just thinking about it. While we can’t all have the arcade game in our house, perhaps a sophisticated yet cheeky nod to it will do? Designer Chicco Chiari bypassed plastic and any other material you’d associate anything in the 80s with and went straight to Carrara marble when creating this collection of playful ghost lamps called Fantasmini.

London-based StolenForm began in 2012 by designer/maker Christian Marsden who found inspiration all around the urban environment from years of walking the city’s streets. Deciding to give things like bricks, manhole covers, and pipes new life, StolenForm turns them into sculptural pieces that also have a function. The industrial-inspired ceramics are slightly quirky, definitely eye-catching, and completely useful making them the perfect conversation piece for your home or as a gift. (via Design Milk)

Just when you think IKEA couldn’t make ANOTHER product to aid in your everyday life, they somehow do, and it’s something you’d never expect them to make – a bicycle. SLADDA, much like the rest of IKEA’s offerings, is low-maintenance and adaptable to your various needs. They didn’t just launch a unisex bicycle, they’ve created a collection of accessories to go with it in hopes of solving your daily transportation needs and to make your life as easy as possible.

SLADDA is equipped with a rust- and oil-free belt drive, automatic gears, and a multifunctional click system for accessories, like front and back racks and bike bags. There’s also a handy trailer to haul heavier loads. On top of that, there are bicycle helmets, a U-lock, and a pump.

SLADDA is available in 26″ or 28″ versions with a retail price of $499. (via DesignMilk and Caroline Williamson)

The ‘Sno Bike’ concept by the studio, Venn Industrial Design Consultancy, enhances their experienced knowledge in bicycle brands, to deliver a product that thrives in snow conditions. Reflecting the designers’ energy, the active ‘z’ form of the tensile frame provides a strong structure that links the rear wheel to the uni-ski-controlling handlebars. with modifications made to the force transmission and its overall weight distribution, the snow bike has an improved power efficiency and handling performance that aids the user’s ride.
