The Jack light

Do you remember the game of Jacks?

I’ve got fond memories of hours spent playing Jacks and this Jack light by Tom Dixon, which is based on a similar design, brings back plenty of happy memories.

The Jack light is made from plastic and is described as being a, ‘sitting, stacking, lighting thing.’ It’s sculptural in its design and, if you’ve got more than one of them, they can be stacked in quirky ways.

The light was first designed by Tom Dixon in 1994 and in 1997 it was awarded a Millenium Mark status in Britain. It’s available in orange, black or white.

Various retailers have the Jack light for sale, including the V&A Shop, who like it so much that it’s included as part of their permanent exhibitions at the V&A museum.

London landmarks

Bring some of the famous London landmarks into sight, without even leaving your home!

This novel silhouette mirror features a skyline depicting some of the familiar landmarks in the city, such as Tower Bridge and Nelson’s Column.

The mirror is made from acrylic and has adhesive on the back, so it can easily be stuck to a wall. It’s sold by the V&A Shop, who have it priced at £45 – cheaper than a train ticket to visit the city, perhaps?
