This was one of the original versions of the Eight-Fifty which was made from nylon cable ties, dyed to the required colour. The table lamp was launched at 100% Design in 1999 with Ferrious and received an award from Blueprint magazine. It continued to gain more critical acclaim and was included in permanent collections such as the Conran Collection at the Design Museum and the Made in Manchester Galleries at Manchester Art Galleries.

The pendant version of the light was then mass-produced by Habitat and launched in 2001 and the design went on to win the Reader’s choice award for Design of the Year from Elle Decoration, 2002.

The pendant shades are available for £165 +p&p, bespoke colours can be requested contact: claire@clairenorcross.co.uk
