PLAYHOUSE PARTY On May 2, 2014, the Playhouse Square Foundation unveiled the GE Chandelier hanging at the corner of 14th & Euclid in Playhouse Square, Cleveland. Playhouse Square is transforming the theatre district with a nod to its past when it was one of America’s premier Main Streets. At 20ft tall and 17ft in diameter, weighing 6000 lbs and with over 4200 impact-modified acrylic crystals, the chandelier, the largest structure of its kind in the world according to the Guinness Book of Records, will be an iconic representation of the district. The chandelier was conceived by Playhouse Square and Barnycz Group, with lighting design by JK Design Group and Lumid (who also fabricated the chandelier). The LED lighting fixtures were supplied by Targetti and powered by GE light engines. www.jkdesigngroup.com www.lumid.com

DOUBLE O HEAVEN Paul Cocksedge Studio has launched its second innovative design on crowd-funding platform Kickstarter. Following on from the success of The Vamp portable Bluetooth speaker, Cocksedge has this time turned his attention to bike lights, creating a product that “will revolutionise the market and provide an intuitive and practical solution for cycling enthusiasts and leisure users alike”. Cycle safety was a crucial element in the design and the resulting product is a simple, safe and secure light for everyday cycling. The Double O LED light is magnetic, lockable to your bike and rechargeable. Paul Cocksedge says: “As with so many people, cycling is an essential part of my life, and cycling safety is crucial. I’ve used many bike lights but I feel some things could really be improved. I wanted to design a bike light and the inspiration for Double O comes directly from the shape of the bicycle. I wanted something that almost looked like the bike had designed it itself.” www.double-o-light.com
