February 21, 2011 Modern Lighting, Product Design

The ‘yesterday island’ and ‘tomorrow island’ draw their forms off the diomede islands located in the middle of the bering strait situated between alaska and siberia. It was their awkward man-made separation that was a starting point for the group. Sometimes called ‘tomorrow island’ (big diomede, russian territory) and ‘yesterday island’ (little diomede, US territory), as their time difference is that of 20 hours even though they are a close 3 kilometer distance from each other.
