They seem like painting collages at first or perhaps some artsy sculptures that people use to spice up areas. But these are actually lamps that were designed to change the ambiance of rooms in a hurry.

A new classic
The Republic of Fritz Hansen has recently launched FAVN, a new sofa designed by Spanish artist-designer, Jaime Hayón. FAVN (Danish for Embrace) is the result of a creative dialogue between Jaime Hayón and Fritz Hansen.
"FAVN is an evolution of Fritz Hansen's design language that brings together the qualities of Spanish and Danish design,” says Jaime Hayón. "FAVN is picking up from the long tradition of Arne Jacobsen in the sense that I wanted to create a form that was based on a shell, like the Egg and the Swan which looks equally beautiful from all angles."
The sofa is available in a wide range of colors: light grey, sage green, beige, taupe, chocolate, mustard, red, violet, dark blue and black. Each FAVN includes a mix of three fabrics to express the form of its three main components; the shell, seat and back and decorative cushions. FAVN will be available to purchase from Republic of Fritz Hansen stores and selected authorized Republic of Fritz Hansen dealers from around the world as of September.
Watch Jaime talking about the sofa and his design process.

It's the unofficial start to summer and Hansgrohe is kicking off the season with RainBrain -- an electronic computer system for the shower. Much like the highly coveted tablets and smartphones out there, the RainBrain is outfitted with an electronic touchscreen panel that allows users to select their preferences in an easy visual way. For the ultimate in customization, the system can be preset for up to four people and has options for water cascade, hot/cold shower alternation and music selection via a Bluetooth® compatible smartphone or media player- accessible via the menu function.
My favorite part -- an electronic anti-scald system to protects children (and adults) from being exposed to high temperatures by accident.
