a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Designed by Naomi Paul, the Omi pendant collection, GLÜCK, HANNA and SONNE are a series of handcrafted minimal flat pack pendants that evolved from the desire to create lighting that is timeless, playful and quietly opulent.
They are designed to be used in any interior setting to create a soft, atmospheric ambience and to also act as a modern sculptural focal point in a space, whether lit or not.
The pendants are constructed by hand using traditional crochet techniques, made with mercerized cotton sourced from the surplus of the fashion industry. Where normally this pre-consumer yarn waste would be discarded, here it is utilised to create stunning lighting products.
The pendants are available in limited edition colour ways that change with the seasons.
The GLÜCK pendant is now available to buy at Liberty London.
Naomi Paul is a London based designer who is creating some truly unique and intelligent textiles for interior products and spaces. Her aesthetic is clean and modern yet takes inspiration and methods from the past. An expert in combining vintage and charity with contemporary items in her own life, her designs are created using a range of recycled, upcycled, organic, industry waste and British luxury material. Through physical exploration of the yarns constructing and deconstructing ideas Naomi’s designs evolve organically, forming pattern through structure with a subtle sophisticated use of colour. Inspired by traditional craft techniques and the emotional attachment we all hold to materials, Naomi explores the possibilities of knit and crochet for interior application both for the home and commercial settings. Born of German and English descent, Naomi grew up on a farm in Sussex. After studying Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins she then went on to complete a degree in Constructed Textile Design at Chelsea college of Art and design, graduating in 2006.
