Product designer Liya Marison came up with this imaginative, adaptable and creative product. How great would it of been to have such a toy? I’d of honestly had years of play, the decorating would of been the best bit! Ideal for enhancing a child’s imagination.

The more I see the more I want—talk about thinking out of the box! These lights, designed by Jake Phipps, are a fun creative twist on an everyday object. Standing under one of these would make a cool photo!

The Jeeves & Wooster bowler & top hat pendant lights were designed as a playful take on lighting with a real sense of cultural identity. The hat is an object that often associates its wearer with a particular society, heritage or race. The bowler and top hat are classic British cultural icons reflecting a bygone era of imperialism, class divide, and eccentricity.
