The colour block purse is a really fun accessory that can add life to any look. Haina put style and character with colour and function to produce this purse.

Karis Malszecki, “Goldfish Lamp”
2nd Place Winner DEC 404.03




The Goldfish Lamp lights up any space. The design is inspired by traditional Japanese fish ponds and folk art as well as the famous book, The Rainbow Fish by Markus Pfister. The goldfish is made out of felt dyed with food dye, and is cut to size using a cardboard template. Gauzy fabric made of polyester/cotton blends are used to enhance the light filtering through the scale cut-outs and the eyes, these fabrics are white and shimmery, producing a silvery water effect. 100% Wool Felt is an excellent material to use for lighting due to its flame retardant properties, and the varying layers of transparency give the lamp an extra dimension when lit. The choice of orange felt casts a warm light, creating a pleasant ambience.


Materials Used:
Remnant Felt
Polyester/Cotton Blend Gauze
Food Dye
Wood
Wood and Fabric Glue
Halogen 25W Bulb
