SIMPLICITY IN DESIGN


IN SIMPLICITY WE FIND THE BEAUTY, BECAUSE THE EYE CAN REST! WHEN THE EYE IS ABLE TO REST, THE SOUL CAN REST!

CLODAGH - AN IRISH DESIGNER WITH ZEN IN HER VEINS

CLODAGH - AN IRISH DESIGNER WITH ZEN IN HER VEINS



A leading innovative designer, Clodagh, creates environments as art to live in. Her trademark: inventive and sensitive use of materials. She emphasizes the unexpected, exploits the natural aging process to insure low maintenance, and pursues "total design". For her, design and life involve all the senses: sound, sight, touch, smell, taste, and all the elements: earth, water, fire, air, as well as the intangible.
Born in Ireland, she started her own fashion design company at age 17 and within two years was one of Ireland's leading couturieres. With a passion for "total design" she collaborated with the local craft artisans of weaving, knitting and fabric painting for 12 years exporting her designs, accessories and fabrics worldwide.
Clodagh moved naturally from fashion to architectural design. In Spain she founded a design company landing projects which ranged from hotel and spa complexes to landscaping and interior design. Cooperating with conservationists, she expressed her environmental concerns through energy efficient housing which employed solar and wind energy. In 1983 she moved to New York and opened Clodagh Design International, a design showroom and studio in lower Manhattan. She has completed major commercial projects as well as residential, retail, office, salon and corporate image projects throughout the United States and Europe. In 1995, Clodagh was named one of the worlds 100 leading interior designers by Architectural Digest, and was inducted to the Interior Design Magazine Hall of Fame in 2000.
