Light Reading

 


Light Reading


Code: 158LNLGT1
Price: $900.00
Dimensions: 30"H x 60"W
 

 

 

Light Reading is an attractive light shade and is part of a range of book furniture. Every page is folded in half, producing a circular arrangement which hangs around a ceiling light. More books are printed every year, read and discarded. Even though many are taken to charity shops, they mostly go unsold and the charities have to pay for the books to be sent to landfill. For example 10,000 books a week from one charity will go to waste. There is currently no infrastructure set up to recycle the paper from books because the paper is low grade and the glue on the spine must be removed. These wasted books are used to create a beautiful chandelier.

Lucy Norman graduated in 2007 from the University of Brighton with a 1st Class Honours degree in Product Design BSc, winning the Engineering prize for best overall performance. Lula Dot was created at the beginning of 2008 and operates from Supine Studios, a studio/gallery in Hackney. Lula Dot is a company which aims to upcycle London's waste into lasting beauty. 

Lucy works as freelance designer in London. Her most recent projects include: display design for Urban Outfitters and Howies, product design for Winther Browne, and set design for the Tufnell Park Theatre Company. Lucy's designs have featured in 1000 New Eco Designs, Lighten Up, and Acme Climate Action.

Her work is currently on show at the Science Museum in London, and the Museum of Design in Plastics in Bournemouth. 

Her latest projects have dealt with the problem of waste. She has tackled this by reusing waste to create beautiful products, but has also tried to create products which encourage emotional attachment and therefore increase a product's durability. Lucy works with a range of materials and objects to create lights, jewellery and furniture.
