Inhabited Light Fitting

Creating a custom light using waste materials, this light can be either hung from a wall, be a floor lamp, or become a ceiling lamp.


Billy-Jo Pierce reflects on the wonderful experience of winning a prestigious New Designers Award:

‘I was delighted to be nominated! I had a conversation with the guys at Anglepoise and I was even more delighted with the fact that they asked to see more of my work afterwards. I would highly recommend students to apply for everything and anything in the future.’

Billy-Jo showed great resourcefulness, with interesting explorations into material development using household waste.

The concept itself then invites the user into the design and manufacture process delivering an exciting and sustainable solution. The University of the West of England, Bristol.

The Brief:

Given a blank sheet of paper, where would you take the humble task light? We would like you to design a task light that creates an environment for deep, productive work and supports wellbeing.
