Ukrainian designers Valeriy Kuznetsov, Katerina Kuznetspva and Illarion Karnaukh, all together Decorkuznetsov Sudio, have created this family of dual-functional objects. Called Ushanki (Russian for ‘babushka’ hats), the pieces combine shelving and illumination. Each wooden unit is fitted with a fluorescent lamp, which makes Ushanki perfect as a night stand or an ambient bookcase. The piece comes in three sizes.

These things are odd but very likeable, I like them. They look like something you might have seen on the Jetsons cartoons. If I knew where to get one, I would. It is quite interesting and above all else – functional – in a space age retro kind of way…
