Woodstar is designer David Gourlay’s brighton based artisan furniture company. Focusing on curved, circular and spherical wood-based products as well as bespoke lighting and furniture. The Woodstar illuminations are unique curved wood light fittings.
The company’s founder, David Gourlay, says
“Woodstar was born out of my desire to work with a different shape. My background is as a joiner and furniture maker, which invariably involves making rectangular boxes and frames. Whereas in fact I’ve always been drawn to circles and spheres – forms which are so dominant in nature: a pupil, an iris, planets and stars, orbits, flowers, etc.
Yet I appreciate the stark and minimal rectilinear environments which are such an important part of our modern aesthetic. Our lights look particularly striking in this sort of environment as they offer warmth and contrast, and an organic quality which is still sophisticated.”
