The Navicula pendant lamp is another nature inspired design by the New Zealand based designer, David Trubridge. The lamp, that just recently got recommended for the Darc Award 2017, is inspired by the many microscopic diatoms that float in the ocean. It is illuminated by a row of LED pin point lights at the inside of the skeleton, that is made of CNC cut Bamboo-Plywood.

Tarantism - The urge to overcome melancholy by dancing.
“That’s it, music’s on. Get your ass up off of that chair and get over here.” Mae stood in the middle of her small apartment studio in nothing but a t-shirt and panties, a hand on her hip in a sultry pose as she attempted to allure David away from his spot by the window.
The little bit of furniture she had was easy enough to move in order to create the illusion of a temporary dance floor. Of course she had let David move the heaviest furniture, making a point to fuss over the weight of a smaller accent table. A funky bass line and guitar riff started up on the speaker and Mae began to sway her hips seductively.
Don’t let me hear you say life’s taking you nowhere, angel Come get up my baby
Keeping her eyes on his, she crooked a finger at him with a playful smile growing on her face. She didn’t know if he knew how to dance, but she had felt his body move with hers in other ways. She knew he could keep rhythm with her, and he was exceptional at moving his hips.
Look at that sky, life’s begun Nights are warm and the days are young Come get up my baby
When he met her at their makeshift dance floor, she clasped her hands in his and brought his arms around to circle her waist. “See, that’s not so bad now is it?” She teased. She felt his hands move to her hips, his body moving closely against hers. He changed his hold on her and dipped her in a half-circle, her face coming up within an inch of his. “Daaaavid.” Mae breathed, surprised. “You’ve been holding out on me.”
