Designed in Hackney: these crochet pendant lamps by Dalston designer Naomi Paul are made of mercerised cotton and surplus silk from the fashion industry.

Called Glück, Sonne and Hanna, the three shapes in the Omi collection are hand-made in limited editions of each colourway.

They're shown here illuminated by Plumen low-energy designer lightbulbs, which were featured in the first week of our Designed in Hackney initiative.

Paul's work combines recycled, upcycled, organic, industry waste and British luxury materials to form patterns by exploring the structure of textiles.

Designed in Hackney is a Dezeen initiative to showcase world-class architecture and design created in the borough, which is one of the five host boroughs for the London 2012 Olympic Games as well as being home to Dezeen’s offices. We’ll publish buildings, interiors and objects that have been designed in Hackney each day until the games this summer.

    @dic I really don't see how this is anything like that awful lampy cocoon, these are stunning and are an original use of sculptural forms and soft materials. Very well done.
