ANDRE HNATOJKO | lighting designer


Inspired by ‘party poppers,’ each lamp is fabricated from 100% recyclable/recycled elements, using finishes that produce no offset gases when in use thus contributing to a healthier interior environment.

The Popper series now includes POPPER TILT and MINI POPPER, unveiled at independent designer showcase NEST13 at designEX, all versions now commercially available.

POPPER TILT installation now permanently resides at The Ian Potter Centre Cafe at the National Gallery of Victoria; and POLLY POPPER, a collaboration with Lab de Stu member Dale Hardiman, showcased at NGV Melbourne Now exhibition 2013-2014.

POLLY POPPER – a bespoke collaborative project made from biodegradable non-toxic plastic – is produced in a domestic kitchen by using the Popper light mould to form the lampshades.

Polly Popper was awarded best lighting design at Melbourne Fringe Festival 2013. Watch the incredible video of the intense fabrication process.
