Copperfish has had a very successful first quarter which began with its participation at Showcase 2022, Ireland’s Creative Expo® and one of the country’s largest international trade shows. This was its 5th year attending and, as ever, it was a great opportunity to meet new and existing buyers.
Apart from exhibiting, Copperfish was selected for the fourth year running for Design Ireland Edit, a curated selection of the best of Irish Design and received a Highly Commended award in the Best Product Awards, Home Category.
In other news Copperfish was commissioned to design a lighting feature for a new wellness display area in Kilkenny Shop’s flagship Nassau Street Store. The brief was to create a focal point for the wellness area and to illuminate the range of wellness products on display.
Copperfish created a dramatic light feature using 7-inch copper piping and a series of decorative LED light bulbs running from ceiling to the display area. Despite a tricky installation, which included disguising working pipework and adding a functioning tap, the result is light fitting which fits the brief and creates a relaxing, warm and inviting wellness department.
