Blinding Love Pendant Lights

February 11, 2011

Christopher Jobson

These heart lamps are just awesome. And by awesome I mean, so amazing that if I saw them hanging in a storefront window I would break the glass with a nearby snow shovel (this is Chicago people), deftly pluck the lights from the ceiling and return to my underground lair of high-end lighting where I would hang them and cackle MIIINEE AT LAST!!! Ahem.

Designed by Thien Ta Trung at Periphere for Toronto’s Made at Home show, the lights were aptly inspired by the phrase “Home is where the heart is”. And they will be mine. Oh yes, they will be mine. (via hello bauldoff, mocoloco)

Phonograph Engagement Ring

January 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Luke Jerram created a functional phonograph recording on an engagement ring that he used to propose to his girlfriend.

Working with a jeweler and the vinyl record manufacturer Dubstudios, I created this engagement ring for my partner Shelina. The ring has a 20 second recorded message (my proposal) etched onto it’s surface and can be played back with a miniature record player. […] Using the ring, I proposed to Shelina in a hot air balloon over Bristol in 2005. We’ve since got married and had 2 children Maya and Nico.

Well, I for one etched a symphony into the side of a spacecraft to propose to my wife. (via make)
