THE LIGHTING DESIGNER
best known as a pioneer of lighting design and the creator of the inimitable Branching Bubble chandelier.
“The Branching Bubble design turned a little idea into a company in 2006,” says Lindsey Adelman. It is this design — a visual nexus of naturally blown glass set against machined metal supports — that announced the lighting designer to the world. “It’s still our foundation,” she says. Adelman sees women as playing a different role to men in the industry today. “We often don’t see women the way we see men, but in many ways this is a strength, not a weakness. Success can often be private and personal, and I love that.” For her, design reaches far beyond the aesthetic. “The range of views from different viewpoints, gender included, enrich the industry and culture. Design is the reflection of the context in which we live, as well as a catalyst to shape it. The bigger the range of interesting and curious voices, the better.”
