The New Stone Age

PiP has yet to experience dipping its toes in either of Glastonbury’s ancient subterranean springs – the Red, Chalice Well or more famous White spring in the hill beneath its famous Tor – but it’s on its, ahem… bucket list. As is another ground-sourced product spotted from Milan-based product designer Henge, which has hewn out its own, new ‘Crystal Evo’ pendant light, formed of a warm 2700K LED light between two sheets of thin White Crystal suspended by delicate straps of cowhide leather. The PR says it exhibits ‘alchemies of light and translucencies of arabesque textures;’ a shoo-in ‘niche product’ for the town’s gamut of new age healing shops.
