I've always been fascinated with shapes that tessellate; the light and shade forms create and their potential to embellish a room and affect mood. When I started out on this journey to design and make sculptural lampshades, I had in mind the idea to reinvent the simple paper globe.
My ideas grew from a period of experimentation working with uniform grids, symmetry and repetitive patterns. Applying these rules of geometry and using a computer and A3 printer I managed to transform something flat into three-dimensional forms. By piecing together sheets of paper to continuously scale up small models and evolve concepts that edged closer to a fully formed idea. With a background in graphic design and my experience of the print industry I translated these concepts into products for commercial lampshade designs.
