THE LIGHT­ING DE­SIGNER

VOGUE Living Australia - - VLife - @lind­seyadel­man

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.”
