The Light-Room seem absolutely heavenly for a couple of reasons. The most obviously has to do with its all-white aesthetic, yet it is another unique feature that makes me think of a rather heavenly perch: The Light-Room is so named because of its featherweight furniture pieces.

The Light-Room weighs a whopping 16.5 pounds. This is impressive considering it is comprised of five pieces: the Dyneema Chair, the Tensile Table, the Gridshelf, the SLS-Chair and the Gaudi Stool.

Designed by Bram Greenen, the Light-Room uses materials such as kevlar, silk, aluminum and woven dyneema to "reduce energy consumption during production and transport, and minimize the use of materials without sacrificing style," according to Yanko Design.
