2011 Design Inside the Box Runners-up

The five other designs on our judges' long list.


Lotus Light by Danielle Tussman

Rather than rising from water, this lotus hangs from the ceiling. Made of brass and steel, the light at the centre of the flower reflects off the surrounding petals, creating a romantic glow. Danielle Tussman designed the piece to light an intimate dinner table or a kitchen island.

Concrete Table by Danielle Tussman

This table's smooth top looks like it's made with rock but is actually concrete. "It challenges the notion that concrete is not beautiful," says its creator, Danielle Tussman, a self-employed designer. Plants can be placed in pockets in the tabletop, lending a new meaning to "concrete jungle."

Zebra Panels by Erika Sanchez and Sheila Hahn

These decorative panels, made from medium-density fibreboard, have deep ridges forming a zebra-stripe pattern, with a layer of veneer on the raised portions. Erika Sanchez, an industrial designer with Kohon Designs, and Sheila Hahn, company owner, created the panels to be focal points in a room. They would look great above a fireplace or a bed, or as feature pieces on a bare wall. skonsolide.com

Lodgepole by Terry Frost

Outlines of lodgepole pines are laser-cut into the four stainless steel sides of this piece, which can function as a candleholder, a flower vase or an objet d'art. Terry Frost, a prominent Edmonton architect and designer, was asked to create the piece for an environmental banquet. When a candle is lit in the base, tree outlines project onto walls and dance when the flame flickers.

Glass Noodles by Rose Marie Pally

Rose Marie Pally, owner of Panache Glass and Ceramic Tile, handcrafts glass, ceramic tiles and glass architectural panels in her Edmonton studio. In this case, the leftover glass became the work of art. She gathered scrap pieces from several projects and used them to decorate a plant pot outside her office. panacheceramic.com
