Calum Duncan Architects
Before setting up Calum Duncan Architects this year , Calum worked at Malcolm Fraser Architects in Edinburgh from 1998-2015, working on a wide variety of project size and types including public arts, commercial, residential and educational.
With this experience Calum has developed a specialism in complex and multi-use buildings, both large and small, as well as an understanding of the personal requirements of residential clients. His approach to design looks to connect issues of existing buildings or existing site conditions with a strong environmental agenda. Calum is interested in how these values, as well as the more pragmatic functional requirements can strengthen what is the most important outcome: a well considered and appropriate design, making inspiring spaces which are pleasurable, while practical to use.
Handmade books – turning forgotten materials into something special. Workshops, community projects, commissions and upcycling goodness!
Coolicon Lighting Ltd
First patented in 1933, the Coolicon® shade is firmly established as a design classic, still sought after for both work and domestic spaces, from studios and offices to apartments, kitchens and farmhouses.
The first edition Original Coolicon® shade is back in production. A Coolicon® shade that is true to the original patent, made in England to the same high standards. Today’s Original Coolicon® with its hand finished enamelled coating is made from spun steel with the original two part welded gallery and reflector, as in 1933
