a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
James Smith Designs announced its first-ever participation at the London Design Festival this September. The Falmouth-based designer, James Smith, showcased his current collection of products & furniture.
The Glade Floor lamp was launched at Clerkenwell Design Week earlier this year, and at 100% Design James Smith debuted the Glade Pendant, which embraces a novel use of traditional materials and modern manufacturing techniques in order to create a unique, complex silhouette. The design makes use of hundreds of willow strands, creating light and shadow that can be found in nature.
