Lighting design agency Haberdashery might just be one of the industry’s best-kept secrets, with the studio’s prolific output of lighting sculptures having remained strictly behind (residential) closed doors for the past nine years. Co-founders Ben Rigby and Mac Cox are the driving force behind the 24-strong team that makes up the London-based studio and with their very different routes to market and design influences playing an important role in the company’s style and techniques, it’s easy to see how Haberdashery has grown into something quite extraordinary.
It is in these periods of discovery that we often make mistakes or find surprising answers to questions. Often it is in the unknown that we find the answer; the unpredictable nature of light is there to be manipulated and tamed, to be worked into intelligent solutions through innovation for bold clients willing to allow Haberdashery to say ‘what if?’
'Referring to themselves as next-level designers the multi-disciplinary creative agency known as Haberdashery London is wowing everyone from the interiors gurus Candy & Candy and Selfridges department store to the light artist Chris Levine with its unusually experimental brand of expertise. Seamlessly merging skills rooted in art, design and technology, and fuelling both design development and research, it seems there is little the young London agency isn't willing - and able - to tackle.'
