Shane Holland

Shane Holland designs and produces furniture and light fittings from a wide range of materials including timber, metals and acrylics. Holland uses recycled materials where possible, and has recently begun to incorporate found objects into his work, such as the bottles used in his Riesling and Borscht chandeliers, and the cast iron weights used in his 686 table.

Holland’s current work includes a series of oversized lamps made with industrial shades, including the Arthur and the Belljar. While retaining a period appeal, the design of these pieces represents a reworking of the classic standard lamp form, and features a specialised tilting mechanism. In the elegant and dynamic Ruray desklight, Holland plays with sculptural form and LED lighting. The shape of the Ruray is inspired by the legendary tonn ruraigh wave – imagined but never seen off the coast of Co. Down.

Holland graduated in 1989 with a BDes in Industrial Design from the University of Limerick. His workshop is based in Duleek, Co Meath.
