Light Fantastic




Light Fantastic
Light up your world and visit design at its best, 19 Irish lighting designers will come together to showcase their latest work at The Malthouse Design Centre. The event will run for two weeks from may17th to 31st and is open to the public.
Inspirational designers are launching their ranges, some for the first public viewing such as Kathryn Payne and Aislinn Lynch who have been working with the Mentorship Academy at the Malthouse set up by Duff/Tisdall; while other designers are well established and already exporting all around the world.
Rachel O’Neill from Banbridge in Northern Ireland has an exciting copper finish range of chandeliers, very much in demand on the west coast of America. Shane Holland has just completed a striking commission for a client in Montpelier, France. Furniture designers Cillian Johnson and Pat Casserley extend their furniture ranges to include warm wood featured lights to compliment the home. Young designers Fiona Snow and Klickety challenge the versatility of cut-out coloured shaped lamps at affordable prices. Glasshammer and Sasha Sykes use translucency of glass and resin to create interesting nature-inspired chandeliers and table lamps. Locker13 Shane Wilson and Karl Metcalfe use clever re-invention of the common day Comfort fabric conditioner bottle to recreate a featured lamp. Other featured designers include Niki Collier, Anthony Cleary, Jennifer Slattery, Nostalgia, Mel Bradley, Mint Design and Kooyong design.
