Fishbone Design was created twenty years ago when directors Colin and Alie Tilley couldn’t find imaginative and creative lighting for their new home. Colin having trained in engineering, art and theatre lighting and working in Special Effects for the BBC decided to put his skills into finding a new life for industrial objects which had come to the end of their mechanical existence, permitting a new unity, one that is purely visual.
Colin’s influences include the work of Jean Tinguely, Anthony Caro, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and David Smith.
Fishbone Design supports All About Alie (AAA), by raising money for Stem Cell Research into Motor Neurone Disease at the University of Oxford. Alie, co-director of Fishbone Design, lost her battle with Motor Neurone Disease in May 2016. Just after this, AAA reached their fundraising target of £52,000 for one years worth of research. Fishbone Design is going to donate 10% of all profits from the lights to AAA to help fund a second year of research. Visit the AAA website Here
