Huge thanks to The London Magazine, the UK’s oldest cultural and literary journal who have just awarded us with this most covetable award.

“What’s interesting about Naomi Paul is the great mix of technology and craft. She uses a manual process and you can see how her work has been built by hand but it also has a thoroughly modern feel and look. I also like the way her lighting works well at different scales. I’ve seen the large light in the Condé Nast college and it looks amazing. It works well close-up and from afar. Her lights have weight and density but she pulls off a nice trick – they have volume and come in strong shapes yet look light and airy.”

This is a client led colour combination made up of our classic Slate Grey and new addition Glacier.
A calming subtle tone not quite white, grey or blue but just hovering in between a defined shade. Coupled with Slate, a strong and yet soft colour way that contrasts and compliments creating a cool clean combination. I look forward to seeing this Hanna pendant duo in situ
Pink & green or dusky blush & foggy Alpine with a hint of dried lime peel to be specific, are the two colours which keep bouncing together in the studio this month…
It was a huge honour to be showcased at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014 as part of British Busniess House (BBH) 2014 with UK Trade & Investment organisation, UKTI. The event took place at the famous and imposing Glasgow City Chambers which was designed by architect William Young and first opened its doors in 1889. The chambers provided a beautiful backdrop to a huge range of British designed and manufactured products and we are very proud ad happy to have been part of the event. With thanks to Walpole Crafted for enabling the showcase of Crafted 2014 mentees to be part of this event.
