Designer Naomi Paul is perhaps best known for her award-winning “Omi” lighting collection, which consist of lamps made from fashion industry waste. Her dedication to sustainability is integrated into every step of her design process, from the initial material sourcing to the delivery and end of life considerations. Paul recently showcased her work at ICFF 2014 in New York City, where Inhabitat spotted her cozy and chic lights.

According to the Naomi Paul Studio description, “The lighting is distinguished by an exponential mathematical curve spun in 360 degrees and hand crocheted from mercerized cotton resulting in a beautiful dichotomy between exacting technique and exquisitely soft material.” Paul crochets her dramatic, modern designs out of a wide range of sustainably sourced materials, from upcycled industry waste to 100 percent organic cotton.
