The Crochet Cloud lighting collection was one of my first design to be developed after finishing college and joining the Malthouse Design Centre. It has proven to be a great starting point in my design career with the collection having been featured on many major design blogs and website including Design Spotter and Inner Design. The Crochet Cloud has appeared in a number of features and articles since its production including features in the House and Home Magazine, The Sunday Times, Irelands Interiors, Homes and Living Magazine, you can read the full articles from the press page on my website, www.grainnelyonsdesign.com. The Collection was developed through my interest in how flat sheet material can be constructed into three dimensional form through a variety of techniques. I was influenced by many great sculptures and designers with the same design philosophies as myself. The collection of pendant lights achieve their form through a technique of slotting 12 identical two dimensional modules together which have been sliced in a specific manner to create an overall sphere form. This form is create as a result of geometric mathematical systems. To add texture and pattern to the form, a photograph of Irish crochet has been digitally printed and transferred onto the plastic in variety of different colours. As many of you may know I have been working on the Gráinne Lyons Design brand and have developed further lighting collections and modular candle holder collections since, which I have blogged about previously. All these new developments are based on the same theories and philosophies, however these designs all sit as a family together. It is because of that reason that I have decided to no longer produce the Crochat Cloud collection and to concentrate on moving the brand forward with a full range of lighting and homeware which work with one another. All stock is limited so please email me firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries, availability and sales.
Will keep you all posted on further developements to the Gráinne Lyons Design brand and further additional to the new complete homeware and lighting range.
