(DE)light is Cristina Ferraz's most recent work which attempts to challenge our concept of light by reinterpreting the key components of light, lamp and bulb.
The project by RCA graduate Ferraz, explores the notion of freeing light from its solid exterior and bringing it back to its intangible essence.
Speaking on her work, she explains:
This month the city of Brussels will be celebrating its first design festival by showcasing works from over a hundred designers and architects working both within Belgium and abroad.

In 2008, the American designer George Nelson (1908-1986) would have been 100 years old. In recognition of this centennial anniversary, the Vitra Design Museum is planning the first comprehensive retrospective of his work.
This month sees the London Design Festival, the UK’s biggest annual celebration of design, take over the city for the 6th year running. Throughout this time DeTank will be giving extensive coverage to the best of the events, including our daily pick of what not to miss.
Creating objects that have the ability to transcend their utilitarian purpose and affect users on a more personal level is one of the main motivations behind Jennifer Anderson's work, Material Series.
As one of Anderson's more experimental projects, the Series is comprised of five identical chairs made from five different materials: wood, mud, grass, wax, and bronze.
This series of chairs made from walnut, polyethylene, and industrial felt are a perfect expression of the quality and creativity of Jennifer Anderson’s designs.
Working across the boundaries of art, craft and design, the San Diego based designer-maker combines craftsmanship, form and concept to create one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture.

For the festival this year, Foundry and partners will be converting an industrial warehouse into a gallery-like shopping space for visitors to buy some of the world's most exclusive design brands.
For a short period of time, the venue will operate as a 'pop - up' retail store and will be accompanied by a one-off design showcase.
