At LyZadie Design studio we have long been enamoured with the broader art world. As well as our love of nature, art in its many forms provides inspiration for the collections we launch. We consider all of our makers artists, as the level of care, love and craftsmanship they bring to each piece they work on is at a level that must surely be recognised as art.
With our first solo art exhibition: A Path Through A Land Swathed In White, we wanted to pay homage to the thrill and creative spark of the art world. We wanted to see how far we could blur the lines between literature, art and object and watch what might unfold as a result. In short, we wanted to make art and design work hand in hand and see what beauty might be brought forth.
Our ReLEATHERED Collection is a manifestation of storytelling brought to life and was the starting place for this new, genre breaking collaboration. In our furniture pieces, the team weave the previous lives of old leather belts into new objects. In sideboards, armoires, benches and more, the journeys these belts once took are on display, rich in texture, deep in history.
