If you’re working in the building design profession and you haven’t heard of the name Matthew McCormick yet, you’re probably living in a hole…albeit a very nice hole. Since launching Matthew McCormick Studio in 2013 his highly acclaimed light fixtures have become a hit within our design community and his talents have been sought after worldwide.  I had the honor of working with Matthew on a project a couple of years back and I’m excited to be working with him once again. We recently met up for coffee to talk about work and engaged in a fun and inspiring Q&A session.

What sparked your interest in lighting design?

I believe lighting has always had the ability to evoke an experience and set the tone and atmosphere of a space. When it comes to decorative lighting, it also has the ability to be the centerpiece and focal point; illuminating a room with art. Although I’ve always been a bit of a tinkerer, l always had an affinity for lighting; creating sculptural pieces that came to life when you turned them on.

We welcome you to #LIVthewallpaper with us this month via some very special pieces. Our custom calendar pays homage to the Eames bird which has been a staple in design for decades, as well as the lovely Terasso shelving unit by Tony Almen and Peter Gest. To add more life to the calendar, we also included a beautiful fig tree that lives within our current work space. Hopefully, the vibrancy and richness expressed can make its way to your September and the rest of the year! Download links below.
