Laura-Jane Atkin­son has given linoleum a new lease of life

The Simple Things - - FRESH | JUNE THINGS -

Once as­so­ci­ated with kitchen floors, linoleum has been given a new lease of life by Manch­ester-based de­signer Laura-Jane Atkin­son. She uses this “clean ma­te­rial” to make a play­ful range of light­ing and vases, above, from £80, by hand cut­ting squares, lam­i­nat­ing them and then turn­ing on a lathe. She in­tends to ex­pand the range with a new col­lec­tion launched next month at ‘New De­sign­ers: One Year On’ at the Busi­ness De­sign Cen­tre in Lon­don. A de­signer des­tined for the spot­light. lau­ra­janeatkin­son.com
