Conceived and weaved in Italy, using only flame retardant yarns from Trevira, the collection is an insight on the design iconography of four different continents. Hence the name: Globetrotter. Four designs for a total of nineteen fabrics, featuring a palette of natural colors with a hint of more audacious shades, like acid green, Ferrari red and luscious purple.
SoFar SoNear voyage pays homage to Italy with ‘Rinascimento’, modern damask. The following stop-over is Japan, where the antique families used a ‘Kamon’, an emblem to identify themselves. Finally, they move to Oceania and find inspiratiolon in the tattoos of the Natives, like the ‘Moko’. Their last stage is America, where they pay a tribute to the ‘Navajos’.

Tony Miles Designs’ lights featuring in the Big Brother house
Tony Miles Designs is a bespoke lighting and furniture designer.
His bespoke designs are industrial, contemporary and simplistic. The pieces blend the strength of industrial products with basic functionality to create a bold object of interest.

Steel tube, boxes and brass fixtures are used, which really give the designs a modern, vintage, retro look. The lights are also fitted with a dimmer, which works well with the specialist handmade filament light bulb like the Edison and this in turn brings the designs to life.
Tony Miles Designs is currently featuring in the Big Brother house with eighteen lights. Tony has also been asked to feature at The London Design Festival in September 2013.
