Ashlee Lloyd is a young industrial/lighting designer, conceptualist, textile lover and lighting fanatic based in Cape Town, South Africa. 

 

Simultaneously inspired by the rich culture of craft in Southern Africa and the complex forms found in nature. her aim is to create functional pieces that engage ones emotions and senses.

She allows each piece to form organically, combining contrasting materials such as synthetic rope, yarns, raffia grass and recycled t-yarn.

 

She conceptualizes solutions for interior spaces incorporating traditional decorative techniques such as crochet and modern energy saving lighting methods.

 

Her approach is at once artistic, tangible, functional and unique. Her artistic vision is propelled by her desire for creation.
