Inspiration has many origins and can be somewhat unpredictable. A great designer understands their inspirational source and becomes a conduit for the creativity to flow. The skill is in taking seemingly unrelated imagery and conceiving a new visual context that inspires a body of work.
Christopher Elliott is truly passionate about great design, continuously seeking and anticipating the current global trends and forecasts. This visual diary reflects products, styles and images that both inspire and guide Christopher’s work.
I first saw these sculptural and organic pendant lights called ‘Oak’, by Ross Gardam http://rossgardam.com.au/, during the recent Saturday In Design event in Melbourne. I loved the product so much I have specified it on a current project. Coming soon… images of the installation.
