Embodying or at least addressing the current socio-political climate, Lux Pacis by Spanish collective Amarist is a symbolic lamp offering a ‘beam of hope,’ an inverted reference to a war missile. Light itself has long been a emblem for optimism. Custom designed for Design Days Dubai and represented by Barcelona Design Gallery, this singular work engaged visitors as a translucent white alabaster shel projecting LED light. The material itself drew additional reference to purity and innocence but also societal ruins. A rose is perhaps the best emblem of hope and rebirth. The entire proceeds of its sales will be donated to the World Peace Forum, as a concrete step towards design activism.

Last weekend, Robert Wilson welcomed over 1,200 guests to the 24th Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit, raising funds for the institution’s year-round programming. The event brought the creative and philanthropic worlds together for a night of performances, installations; an auction; dinner and dancing. Aptly, this year’s edition had a strong political focus.
