Those partial to string lights (is there anyone who isn’t?) will enjoy the Konstellation System, an ingenious collaboration between Brit designer Peter Marigold and Danish designers Lindberg Eyewear, famous for their lightweight titanium frames. Working with the material’s capacity to conduct electricity from one LED to the next, Marigold’s system is made of many individual titanium elements that can be joined together to create an endless variety of patterns and structures.
