Michael Grassi, lighting designer and maker.
As an artist and designer I am fascinated by objects and I cannot resist imagining their reinvention.
The way I work is by searching out interesting manufactured objects and transforming them into lights which become objects of desire. I never know what I am going to make next and each light is inspired when I spot something intriguing.
I continually look for different components to use when designing my lights - sometimes these are purpose-made and sometimes they are items which I can adapt.
I appreciate and respect the beauty, the engineering and the design of the original object and I enjoy the challenge of taking things apart and examining their construction.
Being inventive and thinking laterally means that I don’t throw anything away as I will adapt and incorporate these parts into new designs.
I produce all my lights in very small numbers, each one is handmade and the majority are one-offs.
