Model Painter Truly Re-Thinks the LED Task Lamp

The design of LED desk lamps all have a disappointing sameness to them; their creators seem unable to shake the traditional bulb-using form factor, and still think of a flat, weighted base and a stalk reaching upwards to support the light source. These are essentially just skinner, flatter versions of what existed before.

In contrast, Czech model painting enthusiast Matyáš Hošek came up with something completely different, designed specifically for the nature of his work. Hošek took a two-meter strip of aluminum, lined it with an LED strip and screwed both ends down to his workbench:

Hošek created this because with model painting, the artist will often accentuate the shadows with darker paint; adding this visual pop to the details gives miniatures the appearance of full-scale realism. 

However, it’s difficult to paint shadows that are obscured by real shadows, like those created by lamps that only offer directional lighting. By shaping the illumination into a semicircle, Hošek is able to get the lighting flat from side to side, as you can see in these photos:

The design may not be suitable for paper-pushers or those continually reaching to the edges of their desk, but it is perfect for executing manual work that is centered on the benchtop and of a fixed size range.

Nice work, Hošek!

Black Model Recreates Famous Fashion Campaigns To Highlight Lack Of Diversity In Fashion Industry

Deddeh Howard is a Liberian-born model based in LA, and she’s hoping to raise awareness about the lack of diversity in the modelling industry with her new photo-project called Black Mirror. In it she recreates some of the world’s biggest fashion campaigns by taking the places of major modelling stars such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Kate Moss and Gisele Bundchen.

More info: Deddeh Howard, Instagram (h/t: boredpanda)

“I would walk into various fashion model agencies and I would immediately be compared to that one or two black model that they had on the roster,” she writes on her website. “Even though I was told by those agencies that I have an amazing look and wish they could represent me, they already have a black model. Besides having an abundance of white models. It seemed as if one or two black models on the roster are enough to represent us all.”

“For this project I decided to re-shoot several of the inspiring and famous campaigns out there and try to show what they could look like with a black model. Why can’t the big brands not embrace our diversity more and give all of us visibility? With this Black Mirror project I hope to show the world that it is time for all of us being seen.”
