British based lighting designer Ali Siahvoshi exhibited work at 100% Design this week, and is the designer behind Fabbian’s line of super-cool chandeliers made from knives and forks. Born and raised in Iran, Siahvoshi has a unique approach to contemporary lighting design. Using previous everyday objects, from table legs, coat hangers and cutlery Siahvoshi has designed a range of light fixtures that exemplify the beauty of recycling objects for new purposes.
Transforming every day objects into lighting fixtures, he gives each object a new and more entertaining lease of life. By giving old objects a new look or purpose Siahvoshi’s lights combine stylish design with a sense of humour, asking the audience to partake in its new and rekindled second life.
