Based in Berlin, British designer Ewan Cashman creates playful interactive products, such as the ‘Pumpal Lamp’. Made of wood, the structure of the lamp also features a spinning concrete stand. Speaking of the inspiration behind it, the designer says: “Using nostalgia and familiarity to invite one to interact with the lamp, the entertaining spinning form becomes an object of functionality too. Through the lamps ability to rotate 360 degrees the user is able to control the type, quality and direction of light that fills the space.” See more photos here.

Irish artist David Smith is based in Hongkong, where he creates minimalist oil paintings. His artworks depict vast spaces, romanticism and environmental degradation. On the inspiration behind it, Smith says: “The images push noise against signal and create tension between a physical material state and the illusion of image. Aiming to be open ended, evasive and spare, they play with a desire for the mysterious and the elemental.” See more photos here.

Says Arcelloni about the series: “Memory is generally defined as the ability of our mind to recall a particular moment in our lives.
