not one to do things by halves, we rustled up a little 'je ne sais quoi' in paris, and received the prestigious Maison et Objet 'Les Découvertes' award for our efforts!  hand picked by esteemed french interior designer, Florence Deau...  "as member of the jury for Le Prix DécouvertesI once more had the pleasure of been chosen by paris fair Maison & Objet to select the best design project from the interior decoration sector (Côté Déco Actuel).  Les Découvertes (i.e. the discoveries) rewards the most impressive new products created by newcomers to the scene.  I chose to award the distinction to the australian designer Loz Abberton for Grandeliers – an astonishing and beautiful collection of flat-pack pendant lights and lamps made of future-friendly materials."   the fluent can listen to Florence explain her choice on the video, the rest can just enjoy the lovely accent and then take a look at her gorgeous blog for a generous feature on our lumières.   vive le grandeliers!
