Inspired by their shared fascination with light and its role in creating a unique ambiance, founders Eddie Kurayev and Albert Akbashev have crafted a truly remarkable sculpture. “Bright Idea” takes the shape of a vintage light bulb and showcases the intricate beauty of disassembled watch movements from timepieces between 50 and 100 years old.
This limited-edition vintage-inspired piece pays homage to a bygone era when incandescent bulbs were commonplace, now replaced by LED technology. By repurposing these historical components, Berd Vay’e breathes new life into them, allowing them to be appreciated once more. The transformation marked by the government’s ban on vintage light bulbs adds an element of historical relevance to this stunning creation.
We are thrilled to announce that “Bright Idea” has been selected as the first piece to be sold at the prestigious Sotheby’s auction on June 9th—a testament to its exceptional craftsmanship and unique character. The sculpture will surely pique the interest of collectors who appreciate vintage artifacts and one-of-a-kind works of art.

Gearing up for her biggest and most personal season yet, multi-platinum recording artist Coi Leraypresents a dynamic new EP entitled Blue Moon out now via Uptown Records/Republic Records. Listen HERE.
Once again, the project finds Coi firing on all cylinders, using her songwriting as a diary to reveal her unique perspective on life. She laces highly quotable bars with irresistible hooks, showcasing her lyrical acumen and impressive vocal delivery at the same time. She opens up the world of Blue Moon with the single and music video “Isabel Marant.” Ethereal production underscores her breathy verses as she reminds, “They can’t fuck with Coi Leray.” It culminates on a hypnotic hook that’s impossible to shake. The accompanying visual intercuts vignettes of Coi underwater, shimmering in blue glitter, and ruling this fever dream like a bossed-up high fashion mermaid.
Connecting deeper with her fans, she passionately shared on Instagram, “This EP, I get vulnerable. I got tired of “trying” new things and wanted to just do what I do BEST. I have a hard time with telling my story because I get wrapped up in the media narratives, however music is the best way for me to tell it. Sorry I can’t argue with yall on the internet all day. It’s my life, my story, so why not let me tell it? Shit.. at least give me a chance to. The amount of pressure I have on me in the music industry is wild. I mean, who knew I would be walking red carpets and stages with the same icons I listened to growing up. Being nominated or sitting next to ICONS on the Billboard charts in my lil 5-year run. I’m just grateful to have come this far. Just like @bustarhymes said, “who am I to judge someone who’s journey isn’t finished?” Enjoy – Coi”
It just continues a prolific summer for the superstar. She recently dropped her self-titled album, COI. It included the multiplatinum mega-smash “Players” and earned unanimous critical acclaim. HYPEBEAST proclaimed, “Leray is ready to prove herself once again on the new COI,” and HipHopDX raved, “Leray returns triumphant on sophomore effort COI – a follow-up that strips out the excessive features and autotune, and returns the focus to Leray’s eclectic set of influences, talent for pop hooks, and sex-positive flow.” HotNewHipHop also attested, “This new project features 16 tracks that are both catchy and engaging.”
Simultaneously, she has continued to make waves in the fashion world as one of the culture’s hottest crossover stars. Her presence has already proven inescapable, appearing on one cover after another for the likes of NUMERO, PAPER, UPROXX, and EUPHORIA. Not to mention, she has shined in features by W, V Magazine, Interview, Elle, i-D, and more with high-fashion spreads. All of this just sets the stage for more moves in fashion as she cements herself as a style icon.

This album tells the story of so many different pieces of me that I discovered in the moments of pause where I settled down from the noise and learned the most about myself. I hope my fans are as inspired listening to it as I was when creating it.”
