Lindsey Lang trained as a fine artist, taking her inspiration from colour theory, graphic design and illustration.

Attracted to the frenetic visual stimulation of London, Lang’s practice is also informed by the measured calm of work by Joseph and Anni Albers and Constructivism Movement greats such as El Lissitzky and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy.

Her eye for line and colour means her functional products lead a double life as discreet works of art for the home.

For TfL (Transport for London) Lang’s designed a capsule collection, based on her research of design led products, inspired by Harold Stabler’s Roundel tile design and Enid Marx’s Chevron moquette upholstery, which combines the bright and bold aesthetic of TfL and Lindsey Lang’s brands – project unveiled at this year’s London Design Festival, at Design Junction (September 24 – 27th)

Why I do what I do:

For as long as I can remember I have loved making stuff and working hard. Well, this is the perfect job for me. I never get bored as I enjoy a challenge as well as finding solutions…and I work incredibly hard. I love fabrics, pattern, colour and textures so becoming a pattern designer must have been my calling.
