The Yellow Broom studio nestles quietly within the Cairngorms National Park. We are a two person collaboration consisting of two Edinburgh College of Art sculpture graduates Clare Waddle & David Robson. Working with traditional steam bending techniques alongside contemporary construction methods we co-design and make by hand a range of well crafted, design-led, utilitarian lighting. A fundamental recognition of interiors and the opportunities they offer creative minds is central to our work. We place strong value upon simplicity, good craftsmanship, and quality materials. Yellow broom value sustainability and is proud to create products with a zero waste approach to production. All materials are carefully reused; offcuts are converted into wooden business cards, some are collected and carefully stored to create an annual offering of one-off 'by products' whilst the wood shavings from the turning process carefully contribute to the packaging. As with most Scottish based makers, our immediate environment alongside the life we have chosen to surround ourselves with gives us constant inspiration and clarity of mind. We believe that some of the best designs are things that we take for granted; for us, the simplicity and the genius of the paper clip are what we both strive for in the lighting and products we create.
