Ciara O’Neill is a London based furniture/lighting designer with a First Class Degree with Honours from the Dublin Institute of Art and Design. Since graduating she has completed several private commissions while also working at SCP. In 2009 she embarked on a self directed project investigating the untapped structural possibilities of corrugated plastic.
During the course of her experiments Ciara developed a unique method of forming this industrial sheet material, pushing it in ways it has never been pushed before. Having now mastered the process she creates beautiful sculptural forms which provide exciting diffusion for naked light.
French artist Laurent Millet’s installations and photographs are uniquely ethereal and beguiling.

Set up by Tom Housden in 2011, Hand & Eye design studio was borne out of the desire to reacquaint designer and maker. A practising architect, Tom came to feel that the profession’s approach to design was too hands-off and very remote from the process of manufacturing.
The pendants are all hand made to order by UK craftsmen making each truly unique. The process of slip casting liquid terracotta into moulds and hand glazing the fired shades is a skilled process that takes tim.
Designer’s Statement : The Buoy Lamps are part of an ongoing investigation to the aesthetics of industrial technology. The most specific, highly engineered objects take functionality to an extreme which is no longer recognizable to the layperson. The odd shapes and brilliant colours of navigational buoys could just as well be from children’s’ toys, Christmas ornaments or giant jewellery.
Looking for Christmas presents is always dangerous, particularly when I start buying items I already know I want to keep.
