Martina Carpelan of Frost Produkt was invited by the Norwegian magazine Design Interiør to create a lighting fixture in a week: the result is the Sunday Light, a combination sconce and shelf. It functions as a light, but should the power go out (or the mood strike you), you can flip the bulb to hold a candle. I love that it pays homage to the past while still being very much of the present. For more information, go to Northern Lighting.
