Lindsey Adelman * Exclusive Interview

Lindsey Adelman *  Exclusive Interview 1 LindseyAdelman exclusive interview

Lindsey Adams Adelman was born in New York City in 1968. She likes to combine the hand-crafted with the machine-made, the sensual with the practical, and the feminine with the masculine consistently that what defines her work. Her innovative chandeliers are a unique cross between industry and nature.

Read our interview where she reveals a bit more about her-self.

 

A · Firstly, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am an industrial designer. I mainly design and make chandeliers in my Manhattan studio with a team of 20 creative people. I live in Brooklyn with my husband, also a designer, and our son Finn.

B · What’s your favourite part of the design process?
Dreaming about new ideas and adding practicality to make them real.

C · Please tell us more about your art and design background and what made you become an artist and designer?
I studied Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design and that changed everything. Before that I had a good 23 years making things but did not have the skill set to turn that into a job. I love my job so much now and cannot really imagine doing anything else – owning a company allows me to morph and grow and let myself go towards new challenges. It also allows me to try out ideas, see where they go, and have the power to make them become real or remain backstage because they are not ready to go out into the world. To be in that place is a dream.

D · Where do you get inspiration?
Mainly from being on the beach and going to galleries I would say. My husband Ian and I will visit japan for the first time next month which I think will bring a whole new level of inspiration.  Also listening and going to see live music, most recently Massive Attack.

G · What are you working on at the moment?
A new video. I am decorating a set with all pieces I have designed and essentially directing a music video. I am of course a complete novice but there is something in that naiveté that makes it feel so fresh.

H · For you what makes a product rare?
The authentic person behind it.

I · What would people be surprised to learn about you?
That I meditate every day
