The British Design Council and designer Tom Dixon have selected three furniture and production design students from Nottingham Trent University to take part in an exhibition at next month’s Milan Furniture Fair. Students Alice Walker, Valerie von Bechtolsheim and Jo Roper have all designed interactive low voltage lights, billed as ‘combining contemporary design with multi-function use’. Roper’s Globe table lamp (left, closed and then open) is constructed from a series of plywood shutter discs on a glass base. Walker’s illuminated design (right) is a table lamp made of clear and coloured Perspex and von Bechtolshiem’s Zero 65 uses four adjustable and rotating light panels on a cast aluminium stand. All three will on show at the British Council, Via Manzoni, Milan, from 9-14 April.
