Solar powered lamps are very helpful especially now that almost all of us are trying to help in living green to save the earth. Designers Yoon-Hui Kim and Eun-Kyung Kim came up to an idea of creating a solar powered vertical lamp that can collect solar energy with the help of the blinds being closed during the day. When the blinds are closed at daytime, it will block the rays of the sun giving chance for the little solar pads to charge at the back of the blinds. And once the sun goes down the lamp will now start to light up using the power stored during the day.

Working in an office is something very normal to everybody. However, working on a cardboard office is something new to me. This is what the French artist Paul Coudamy has designed in one of the advertising agency in Paris, France. He was able to create furniture out of it, twenty work stations, partitions, meeting rooms and storage with the use of a 4cm thick water resistant honeycomb cardboard mounted with glue and tape. The lighting of the said cardboard office is made from umbrellas. I found this masterpiece as a truly work of art and creativeness. However, I had doubt of the cardboard smell. Normally I do not like the smell of it and it feels like odor pollution will take place. Overall the product design is great.
