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.
Paul's work combines recycled, upcycled, organic, industry waste and British luxury materials to form patterns by exploring the structure of textiles.
She studied graphic design at Central Saint Martins then constructed textile design at Chelsea College of Art and Design, graduating in 2006.
Her studio is on Ridley Road in Dalston.

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.
