Series 6.Eco Icon No.1

BambooBaroque‘ ‘Grandelierlight by Loz Abberton

 

LOZ ABBERTON GRANDELIER

 

 

Queensland born designer Loz Abberton moved to Carlton Bluff on the southern coastline of Tasmania, Australia,in 2006, where inspired by the breath-taking natural scenery of  her surroundings-the Casuarina forests, Mt Wellington, Carlton Beach and the River, she has designed a sustainable lighting collection of graphic yet organically shaped pieces.

Her background in  graphic design and fashion informs her work.Her first range of  lighting called ‘ Who Did That Grandeliers ‘ have been launched in a plain bamboo finish which have an inherent  e understated elegance of their own. Loz also has plans to introduce screen printed and flocked designs to further expand the initial core range of lighting pieces..

The Baroque (above) and Bloom lights can each be used  either as a pendant light, floor light, or wall light . Loz uses only what she describes as  “future friendly” materials  such as sustainable carbonised bamboo and hoop pine which is laser cut to make the lamps. Choosing materials for their ‘flora friendly’ content, Who Did That’s new range of lighting from hand-printed, FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) ply and veneers, and recyclable polypropylene .

Loz Abberton’s new collection is a worthy receipient of the ‘finding eco’ Eco Icon status…and is definitely lighing up my life!!!
