Lyall Sprong

For the South Africa House iLunch stand at the recent Rooms on View show in Johannesburg, young designer Lyall Sprong had his rather sweet 2 Old Chairs Bench on show.
Lyall Sprong is a recent graduate of the Industrial Design faculty of the University of Technology in Cape Town, and is proving to be something of a shining star. Take a look at some of his other work below:

The Ambitious Cork table plays with the functionality of a bottle and cork.
The Euco Bench is about tension and juxtaposition of materials.

Bulb (available on order here) turns the electrical flex holding the bulb into the decorative aspect of the light.

I love the effortless elegance with which the delicate Airy Fairy candlestick can hold both an ordinary candle and a tealight.

The bulb is incredible. The shape is absolutely beautiful. Is the flex custom made in that shape or is it mouldable? I love it!
