I'm researching lighting at the moment and so I thought I'd show you a few things that have caught my eye. I love the chandelier that looks like a firework in mid explosion - isn't it just magical?
This is a quick snap shot of a project that I completed last year. Although I am dying to show you what I've been doing, I can't post any of the professional shots until my new website is up and running and the press releases are out, but this photo should give you an idea. What I can tell you is the pendant light is called the Caboche, designed by Patricia Urquiola.
I've been spending a lot of time exploring creative ways to light some pretty damn awkward spaces. I love the idea of illuminated ceilings (popular in the 60's & 70's), where diffuser panels are hung like a suspended ceiling below florescent lights. These photos are from a project in Portland Place, W1. One of the teams of builders that I work with from time to time, did this - his detail is so good that it actually makes me feel emotional. Great, isn't it?
