Edward Linacre - Melbourne Movement

The James Dyson Award winner and Swinburne University industrial design alumnus Edward Linacre has joined Melbourne Movement and will exhibit at Grand Designs Live this weekend.

Edward will exhibit Weave pendant lamps.

'Weave Pendant Lamps' designed by Edward Linacre

'Weave Pendant Lamps' are the first of a series of lamps born through the amalgamation of traditional craft processes and modern CAD development techniques. Basket weaving was fused with computer surface-modelling to create a complex self supporting 3D woven structure that requires no glues or adhesives to hold its form. The lamps are constructed of 100% recycled timber veneers, reclaimed from the industrial waste bin of a local timber yard.
