The City of Yiwu in China houses the world’s biggest small goods market. Having seemingly arisen over night, it is now the center of trading for small goods in the world. The city strongly encourages young entrepreneurs, and with that in mind, the Lahas Zone was idealistically conceived and designed, centering a green environment that can incorporate services, offices, and exhibitions all into living comfortably. Lahas Zone was comprehensively renovated from an old factory building instead of built a new on the Lahas Zone site in accordance to maintaining green.

LEDs can last almost forever, but they often burn out early because they generate a lot of heat in a very small area. British designer Jake Dyson has built a heat pipe into the structure of the CSYS lamp to carry the heat away from the LEDs and then use the arm of the lamp as a heat sink to carry the heat away from the lamp. The result is an elegant desk lamp that is cool to the touch, with a look inspired by a construction crane. It moves up and down, in and out, and around with the touch of a finger.
Dyson writes: ”Heat pipe technology was developed for use in satellites and is now most commonly used to help cool microprocessors. The primary role of a heat pipe is to conduct heat away from its source. The heat pipe within the CSYS LED task light conducts heat away from the LEDs and distributes it evenly over the length of the heat sink. It uses no external pumps or extra energy to cool the LEDs and is instrumental in keeping the CSYS task light running brightly and efficiently for 37+ years.”

Detached office modules, art studios, recording studios and other work spaces help keep the line between work and home life sharply delineated, but cut your commute down to mere steps. Modern and often modular, these compact office designs fit into virtually any outdoor space, and they’re so good-looking, they practically function as yard art.
