Designed my Business card tonight! They are going to be the Moo MiniCards. I’m getting 80 of the first five different images and the sixth is the back of all of them! I’m really all about greyscale this year.

ReCraft Your Hangers: Hangelier by Organelle Design
OK, this is ingenious. How smart to keep clothes hangers out of the land fill with these groovy light fixtures! What’s remarkable to me, is that the fixtures look so different just by changing the style of hanger, or how they’re put together. Wait…is that a bike tire rim? Golf clap to the designer. Well done! These are infinitely usable light fixtures; I could see them in so many different kinds of rooms. The clear ones are more formal, and the wooden ones are more casual, but there’s no need to stick to a rigid set of rules with these fun light fixtures. They’d add whimsy, and be a conversation starter, all in one simple fixture no matter where you put them. Not to mention, if you use these light fixtures, you get ‘good guy’ points.
Inspired by a folding paper cup I used to make as a child that tapered towards the base and revealed triangular shapes on the inside from the folding process. I kept a box perimeter and used trapezoids and triangles to taper, creating a multi-faceted form similar to that seen on the F-117 stealth aircraft. Hence, the name “The Hopeless Diamond Sofa” (an early nickname given to the stealth). The focus of this prototype version was to use off the shelf materials found at the local hardware store like copper plumbing pipe, shipping blankets, zip ties, and carpet padding. There are no difficult miters or glued joints!
