4D Designs
4D Designs manufacture an extensive range of sustainable lighting suitable for interior or exterior uses.
Koivu (Finish for birch) floor lamps, table lamps and pendant lampshades the largest of which is 4M high look as impressive switched off as they do on.

Koivu is the ideal sustainable lighting product for architects, interior designers and retailers who want to make a real impact with an ecological and eye catching sculptural lighting.

4D Designs began trading in July 2007 after founder Michael Radford graduated from Derby University 3D Design and Sustainable practice BA Hons. Recently Michael established a shared design studio in Ilkeston, Derbyshire 'Shed 2 Studios'

4D Designs works embraces sustainability by reducing the amount of materials and number of processes used in manufacture. Using the latest technology in laser cutting the work recreates the patterns of barks and natural textures cut into birch ply wood and stainless steal.

4D Designs currently produce work for commission and products made to order.

Koivu sculptural lighting products are a glowing sensation to behold. Each of the lighting products are made using laser-cut technology on birch wood giving them a glowing tree trunk aesthetic that recalls the appearance of the material from which they came.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 7 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
