Twitter is an excellent medium for finding new blogs and designers, and my discovery of creative practice Lazerian was a real find.
Set up in 2006 by Manchester born designer Liam Hopkins, Lazerian create a variety of objects – from chairs to lights – through a ‘playful investigation’ of different materials and processes. Whilst still functional, the pieces have a real sense of fun, with brilliant use of geometric shapes and angles.
The armchair above was actually made using cardboard, having first been drafted using computer design techniques. The table below is made using birch plywod modules, with stainless steel rods adding the structure and rigidity. What a beautiful centrepiece for any room!
Lazerian also makes light fittings and wall pieces, which are equally beautiful. What a find, and some really excellent UK talent. Their pieces can be bought from selected retailers, or on their website.
