Technology meets Design...and the windows fog up. Again, a great little discovery at Josh Rubin's site, this is a lamp - a chandelier for Bill Gates and Liberace. Designed by Rod Arad for Swarovski at the Milan Design Fair. "It consists of thousands of crystals and LEDs woven in to a stunning spiral display for whatever text message you send to it." MGR

Nested somewhere between the techy opulence of the Vertu and the creative genius of Jenny Holzer comes Lolita the SMS enabled chandelier by Ron Arad. The piece is one from a series commissioned by Swarovski for the Milan Design Week. It consists of thousands of crystals and LEDs woven in to a stunning spiral display for whatever text message you send to it.
