Recent extinct animals are a great inspirational source for designers.

Under our skin

An extraordinary exhibition awaits you until November 6, 2010 at the Next Level Gallery, in Paris.

Our favorite: a lamp that becomes carpet (Snug lamp) and another one that can provide you free space for your home (table lamp Pad); the raw material designer used is a special leather, just like a "skin" which looks like a leather outside the lamp, as I told you before, but becomes light in the inner part.Bina Baitel, Under my skin, snug lamp
