Berlin-based artist Olafur Eliasson, conceptualised Your House. The book, designed in 2006 by Michael Heimann and Claudia Baulesch, is a limited-edition artist’s book with a laser-cut negative impression of Eliasson’s house in Copenhagen. Each of the 454 pages are individually cut and corresponds to 2.2 cm of the actual house.

Commissioned by the Library Council of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Your House is a remarkable arrangement of cutouts and imagery presented in a minimalist yet technical format. Readers gradually build a physical and mental narrative, whilst also examining the perceptual and spatial experience of domestic architecture of the house.

Although I haven’t had the pleasure of reading one of the 225 printed copies (perhaps one day), I love of the combination of sculpture and architecture and the illusion of being inside the house.

Arik Levy has designed a new series of lights called WellOfLife. He says, “In many traditions and in everyday life Light is Life…. I wanted to combine this idea with the story of catching the light in a water bucket, from which I got the inspiration for the Well.” I like how they are elephant-coloured with pops of colours inside.

A small artisan company, we are dedicated to the design of finest bespoke and limited edition lighting and furniture, executed using a dedication to preserving the tradition of fine craftsmanship.

Objects of beauty and function, the pieces are developed from observations in nature and from the human form.

The work is handcrafted in the finest materials and using time honoured techniques to create each piece as a work of art, with the touch of the craftsman evident throughout.

Since 1991 the work has been seen in public and private collections, both nationally and internationally, with current projects including pieces for London, Moscow, Kuwait and the USA.
