Jiyoung Seo‘s touch sensitive Modular Wall Storage Unit is called SAI, Korean for “between”, and seems in the lineage of the classic Utensilo wall organizer. Tap the silicone blocks and they light up like you’re a contestant of your very own organizing game show. Watch it in action below.

Our Design for You competition continues. This week the prize is Yves Behar’s Leaf Light.
It’s amazing what a good desk lamp can do nowadays. The Leaf Light works hard on a number of levels. It’s an elegant design that uses as little material as possible with 96% of the finished object being recyclable. Its LED system allows you, with the slide of a finger, to change the light from warm to cool. And, as with all Behar’s work, it looks good. To enter to win simply leave your email address here and we will place you in the draw for the light and all the upcoming prizes.

London-based Hulger today launches a new designer fluorescent bulb called Plumen. It sits perfectly within the bare-bulb trend (check out the lights in Heather’s office) and although I’m not sure what it would be like to work by it certainly looks good. What do you think? If ever I replace the IKEA work lamp that currently graces my desk I’m partial to Yves Behar’s lovely red Leaf light

The editors over at Etsy liked Dee Adams’ Oakland home and studio so much they’ve included it in their Get The Look: Decor section. Christine, a writer and editor at Etsy, took the studio as a starting point and put together an amazing list of furniture and objects all from Etsy sellers. She’s done a great job. Here’s just a few of the cool things she found.
1. A red in/out tray from Found Vintage Style.
2. Orange desk lamp from Vintage on the Make.
3. Laser cut bamboo calendar and clock from Decoy Lab.
