We blogged Tay Lighting last year, which was their first showing at ICFF, and were happy to see them back from London with new pieces. We thought that the Astilla pendants were great - embracing the revived interest in pattern and decoration, but retaining a slightly retro modern feel due to their shapes. The shades are comprised of delicate......pressed tin flowers, forming either a globe or saucer shape (shown above). They were shown in both black and white, with a subtly glittery finish.
The Dianthe & Malina lamps were also striking. Based on the art of Chinese paper cutting, they take advantage of the simple drum shaped shade, by going all out with a highly decorative cut pattern, but just on the bottom surface. The first impression is somewhat austere modern, with a interesting twist as your eye lingers. They come in two different cut patterns and three sizes, all in black.
