A trip to the toolshed inspired designer-maker Becky Creed to create The Turned Paper Collection. The 27-year-old contemporary craft graduate had often watched her father, a furniture maker, using traditional woodworking tools and techniques. Working on her debut lighting collection, she had experimented with a variety of different materials but was particularly keen to pursue a recycled and sustainable option. By layering and bonding together dozens of sheets of recycled and hand dyed paper, Becky found she could create a solid block of workable material which could then be shaped and turned on a traditional lathe. “The first time I used the lathe,” she remembers, “I was knocked out by a piece of flying material!” Fortunately, she recovered and persevered. Becky uses chisels and sandpaper to finely craft each paper block into a cylindrical light, the process revealing a unique marbling effect. We were immediately struck by Becky Creed’s distinctive Turned Paper lighting and saw a solution for the waste copies from the first print run of Warehouse Home. Each of the 50 Limited Edition Turned Newspaper Lights is formed from 15 recycled copies of Warehouse Home and measures approximately 25cm in length and 12cm in diameter. Each light is finished with a natural flex and a brass fixture and requires a LED bulb.
