Kevin Reilly

The designer Kevin Reilly is renowned for his work with lights. Taking a completely new approach, this artist of light uses candles to produce lamps that are both modern and old-fashioned. The appeal of Reilly’s light fixtures is due to their refusal to compromise on what are two important aspects of any decorative use of lighting for our time: being charming without refusing modern technology. For as is clear, a candle is an impermanent source of light, since it cannot be left unattended. The genius in Reilly’s approach was to make that light source into something one doesn’t need to worry will burn the house down. Yet he has never compromised on the issue of old-fashioned crafting. Through their perfect mix of the old and the new, the modernly convenient and the romantically decorative, these are truly candles for the twenty-first century.
