Beautiful Recyclable Jellyfish Lamps by Roxy Russell Design

The Medusae Collection

Californian designer Roxy Russell created this series of jellyfish-inspired lighting, where part of the profits will be donated to the Ocean Conservancy.

Made out of recyclable and durable velum finish PET (polyethylene terephthalate) mylar, in addition to white powder-coated aluminum, Russell’s “Medusae” lamps come flat-packed and are designed to hang from the ceiling, allowing their delicate arms to float down, diffusing light softly. Txt Via

Roxy says ““The ocean is such a boundless source of inspiration for myself and many other people, in all fields. Unfortunately, I am also very concerned about the fragile state of it’s very complex eco-system.I wanted to bring to the surface, and illuminate the growing problem of plastic polluting our oceans in a way that makes people inspired to help. We have a floating island of plastic garbage in the Pacific that is twice the size of Texas. Up to 70 percent of this plastic is below the surface, broken down into tiny pieces,becoming a toxic part of the eco-system. Countless fish and birds die from mistaking these bits for food.”

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Alert Sensor Light

Taito presents a sensor light which blares out the ‘Alert’ sound effect from the Metal Gear Solid games whenever anyone attempts to stealthily skulk past the light. The sensor embedded in the pedestal detects movement within a 40° arc of the contraption which then triggers a light and the distinctive MGS sound effect. The sensor light measures 18cm (7.08") in height and will ship in retail packaging.
