Free Form Pendant Lamp, 2014
Gráinne Lyons is a young Irish designer based in Dublin. After graduating from Dublin Institute of Technology with a 1st Class Honours B.A. Degree in Design, Gráinne set up her own studio where she is currently working on her own collection of lighting and interior products. Gráinne creates unique, contemporary and affordable products with a distinct interest in form, construction and consumer interaction. With this lamp her interests lie in how construction techniques and form can combine to create a structure which in essence is quite simple but make the most of visual form. The planar modules used, produce forms that appear complex yet have a basic underlying principle. The lampshade is self-assembled created through an exploration of a particular process rather than a predetermined outcome. Made using polypropylene, Gráinne’s products are 100% recyclable. All products have been made using materials which have been sourced and manufactured in Ireland.
