A Journey of Innovative Lighting Design
If you’re looking for lighting designs that are truly unique, look no further than Curiousa & Curiousa. Founded in 2009, this British lighting company has been creating stunning handmade lighting fixtures that are both whimsical and sophisticated.
The Inspiration Behind Curiousa & Curiousa
The founder of Curiousa & Curiousa is Esther Patterson, a designer with a background in fine art. Her inspiration for the company came from a desire to create lighting that was more than just functional; she wanted to create pieces that were works of art in their own right.
Esther’s designs are heavily influenced by her love for color and pattern. She often draws inspiration from nature, using colors and shapes found in flowers and plants to create her designs.
The Design Process
Curiousa & Curiousa’s lighting fixtures are all handcrafted in England, using a combination of traditional and modern techniques. Each piece is made to order, which means that customers can choose the colors and finishes that best suit their needs.
The design process begins with sketching out ideas for the fixture. Once a design has been finalized, the glass for the fixture is blown by hand in the company’s studio. The metal components of the fixture are also crafted by hand, using techniques such as welding and powder coating. Finally, the glass and metal components are assembled to create the finished product.
The Product Line
Curiousa & Curiousa offers a wide range of lighting fixtures, including pendant lights, chandeliers, and table lamps. Each of these fixtures is available in a variety of colors and finishes, allowing customers to create a truly unique piece for their home.
One of the most popular fixtures in the Curiousa & Curiousa line is the Bubble Pendant. This fixture features a cluster of hand-blown glass orbs in different sizes, creating a playful yet sophisticated look. Another popular fixture is the Chandelier, which features a series of glass shades arranged in a geometric pattern.
The Future of Curiousa & Curiousa
Curiousa & Curiousa has become a go-to brand for those looking for unique and beautiful lighting fixtures. As the company continues to grow, it has expanded into other areas of home decor, including wallpaper and fabric.
Despite this expansion, Esther remains committed to the handmade quality and attention to detail that has made Curiousa & Curiousa so successful. As she says, “Our products are made with care, imagination, and a sense of playfulness that reflects our belief that design should be fun.”
