Adrian Lawson designs and produces light fittings that are made from recycled wooden venetian blinds.
Adrian grew up on the West Coast of Scotland on a small remote island called Colonsay. Because of the difficulty in getting things to the island, people had to constantly improvise by recycling in order to get by.
Over his life of designing and building, this has been one of the clearest memories from his childhood and still influences him to this day.
When he moved to Australia in 2009 he noticed that good quality wooden venetian blinds were being discarded and heading for landfill. This prompted him to wonder what possible alternative future they might have.
It was from this question that the concept of upcycling wooden venetian blinds into light fittings began.
