What do you get when you combine Velcro with a passion for music and playing the piano? Large-scale lighting and wall hanging pieces made from custom-dyed Velcro. Designer Rachel O’Neill lets the melody and rhythm of music inspire her interesting creations.
The Velcro pieces are part of O’Neill’s Looplaa Collection that uses these hook-and-loop fasteners (Velcro) to create a range of fun products that include lights, floor and wall coverings, and children’s toys.
Combining Velcro with a variety of tactile materials, unique and playful one-of-a-kind installations and limited-edition pieces are created. Based in Ireland, O'Neill enjoys transforming heavy-duty industrial textiles and fabrics into beautiful design objects, often incorporating materials like feathers and adding metallic finishes.
