Arts Thread: Lux Craft At London Design Week
An exhibit exploring the potential of lighting in design features works ranging from the purely practical to the wildly conceptual.
As interest increases in the field of lighting design, the Crafts Council and Nokia Design present Lux Craft at Origin, a collaborative exhibition that explores the potential applications of light in design. Ten designers were chosen out of 280 applications for their originality, innovation, quality and craftsmanship, defined by Nokia Design as the ‘mastery of the design process’.
Traditional materials feature as much as contemporary with bone china and hand-blown glass alongside Perspex, Styrofoam and some interesting combinations in mixed media installations. Interpretations range from practical solutions to purely sculptural forms.
