We’ve started to think about all the lovely people and the wonderful work we will see at London Design Festival in September. OK, its a while away and there is lots to do before then but, and there is no point in pretending, London is our favourite City and London Design Festival has to be one of our favourite weeks. Without wanting to go all Julie Andrews, we started thinking about more of our favourite things and jewelry and beautiful lighting came to mind. And, with great synchronicity, our thoughts turned to Penelope Batley, who, in case you have missed her work, combines the two and, what’s more, she will be showing her work at 100% Design during the London Design Festival this year. This is her Big Bling, which she has made in various shades, in various sizes, for various locations. And if you are thinking that it needs a good pair of earrings, how’s this?
A nice enough set of ear adornments? When you see their size, in context, you realise that they would be a little tough on the lobes.
And when she isn’t producing over-sized jewelry Penelope creates other distinctly glamorous lights, this is one of our favourites.
This is Melting Crystal, very much at home installed in a boutique. Lighting and fashion – clearly ideal bed fellows. We don’t know what Penelope will be bringing to 100% Design, but you can be sure that we will be reporting back.
