Cameron Design House teams up with Geronimo

August 15, 2018

(UK) – Cameron Design House set to team up with balloon artist Geronimo.

Cameron Design House will team up with Los Angeles-based balloon artist Geronimo as part of London Design Festival 2018, to create an immersive light installation in the heart of Shoreditch.

Over the four-day event, Cameron Design House will reveal its unique Helmi chandelier alongside Geronimo’s bespoke balloon sculpture for a single explosion of colour and creativity at the Old Truman Brewery.

The Helmi takes inspiration from Founder Ian Cameron’s Finnish hometown of Turku and explores contemporary themes of contrast within the impressive urban structure. With the concept of Helmi first formed during a fishing trip in the city’s bordering Aura River, the design was developed in London after a visit to the Hayward Gallery. Meaning ‘pearl’ in Finnish, the Helmi chandelier is designed with a 24-carat gold plated, industrial net that displays a collection of exquisite glass pearls.

“It is true that light naturally draws the eye, so what holds that light should always be visually stunning,” Ian Cameron, Founder & Creative Director of Cameron House Design says. “The Helmi chandelier creates a contemporary centrepiece with contrasts in delicacy and industrial influence ensuring the design complements the architecture of any space. Carefully crafted to make a statement at any angle, the Helmi reveals subtle changes to the structure and glow of light as you walk around the room.”

Handblown in London, each glass pearl is illuminated by a single LED filament bulb and suspended in the air by tinterwoven gold chains that create the sculptural net. The subtle LED light within each pearl combines as a collective to introduce a warm, inviting ambience to the surrounding space.

Helmi will be on show from 20-23 September, 2018.
