Story Editor Annzra Denita  is crushing on Willow Lamp's new art piece called ‘The Link’. The Link was designed as an abstract exploration of simple shapes made three dimensional, and plays with the concepts of solid and transparent forms. As to why Denita loves it, she says: ‘Not only is this a remarkable work of art, it is functional, contemporary and sleek.’
