Moon rise
Piaget’s Limelight Stella is the first complication watch dedicated to women designed and developed in the Manufactures of La Côte-aux-Fées and Geneva. It is equipped with a moon function; the moon phases appear on a disc—adorned with stars and two moons—that is driven by a 135-toothed wheel. Unlike a standard moon phase that lags one day behind every two-and-a-half years, the Limelight Stella will require a one-day correction only after 122 years.

Waste not
The Zero Per Stool, from South Korean design studio Hattern, founded by Jang Won and Kyungsun Hwang, is the first product of its Zero Per Project in which the designers create decor and home products without producing any waste. Discarded pieces of white oak wood have been used to make the legs of this stool, while the seat has been made by combining discarded shards of wood and resin.
