Design Sleuth: Nonla Lamps from London

September 17, 2013

The danger of designing a custom lighting series for a restaurant? Patrons will start to take note and follow up with demands for production, as was the case with London-based Paul Crofts’ Nonla Lamps, which he designed for the interiors of La Petite Bretagne (the críªperie we featured earlier today). The lamps were named after the Vietnamese word for traditional hats of a similar shape and are available individually or as a series of three.
