DESIRABLE DESIGNS

Out of this world Summer means travelling, and travelling means souvenirs. Whether you stay close to home or roam the world: you will inevitably return with a memento. However, why not invest in something more exotic than a miniature Big Ben this year? With these intergalactic memorabilia, you might as well have been on a city trip to a galaxy far, far away.

2. Atmospheric sphere Just like the moon reflects the sun’s light at night, the Ilumi Glow reverberates its bright glare until long after sunset. The mystical dots in the glass dome charge themselves with sunlight or when the lamp is on, and release their blue magic once darkness falls. After three hours, the last sparkles die out as well, letting the darkness take over. Price on request www.ontwerpduo.nl
