Design / Interiors

IT’S NO secret I have a current blown glass obsession – particularly in lighting. There were some amazing handblown glass lighting pieces at Maison & Objet – including Michael Ruh, Bocci and Pulpo. I never made it to the Giopato & Coombes Editions stand – foot fatigue put paid to that – but their work is amongst my favourite of last year’s launches (they initially showed in London at last year’s Designersblock).giopatocoombes3

Made by Venetian artisans using traditional methods but with super modern LEDs, Cristiana Giopato (who works alongside her English counterpart and other half, Christopher Coombes), aims for the range to introduce traditional skills to modern audiences.giopatocoombes1

The lamps, from around 1260 Euros , can be ordered from the Giopato & Coombes studio. www.giopatocoombes.comgiopatocoombes2
