Statement Light Shades and Contemporary Long Drop Stairwell Lighting | One Foot Taller

One Foot Taller design and produce a range of contemporary elegant pendant lighting, floor and wall lamps as well as ceiling lights for private and commercial interiors worldwide. Our signature pieces, Ethel and Etheletta are available as long drop suspension lights and are perfect for large spaces.

Our head designer Katty Barac is our sole creator, producing one-off items for clients in Europe, the USA and Asia. Our designer believes in longevity, simplicity and sustainability and strives to incorporate these elements into all of her designs. Her formal but sculptural, nearly regular forms, create modern elliptical lighting, globe pendants and geometric lights which also have a human touch.

We have previously won various awards for our work and won the Peugeot Design Award as well as receiving Millennium Product Status for our Chasm Chair. Furthermore, various pieces of our work have featured in exhibitions around Scotland London Milan New York and San Francisco as well as in home interiors and restaurants throughout the UK and Europe. Notably our contemporary ceiling long drop lighting has featured in interesting interior domestic and commercial projects recently.

Previous Clients
We work closely with our clients. This allows us to offer our expertise on style as well as made-to-measure configurations, making sure that each lighting fixture fits every space perfectly. We have worked alongside interior designers to help finish off personal and business settings, these include working on The Botanic House Hotel and Bar Soba. In addition to these we have also been contracted out by businesses to create striking pieces for them, - we have worked with Edinburgh University and Glasgow Science Centre on different contemporary lighting commissions. 

Commercial Lighting
Our range of lighting from the glass pendant to long drop stairwell lighting is perfect for any commercial property as it can be used as a statement or a setting piece. We offer our made-to-measure configurations to our commercial clients. Also new designs for custom made unique pieces. This service can take longer due to the nature of the process and depending on the product – this would be discussed with you before any new commission is undertaken.
