Kate Colin is a designer/maker based in Glasgow who works with paper to create handmade sculptural lighting. Inspired by origami and geometic forms, Kate's bold and sculptural shades emphasise the interplay between light and shade.
Her appreciation for the beauty and variety of three-dimensional forms inspires her unique lighting designs. She is interested in colour, tonal variations, shadow and geometric form and uses her work as a vehicle to explore how they interact with one another.
Every handcrafted piece is scored, folded and assembled in colours according to the client's specifications and when illuminated, their appearance is radically transformed: folds, creases and angles become emphasised while an intensity of colour is brilliantly revealed.
Made from FSC certified paper, the shades are available in white and one of six striking colours from a limited palette.
