Donna Bates Design is a County Down based product design studio founded in 2009. Donna designs and produces limited edition lighting and furniture in collaboration with a close-knit team of local Co. Down workshops.
Donna's designs look to appeal to people on a personal level, referencing anything from the Dairy to the Dunnock in the hedge. Her designs are enduring and practical, each piece is unique, and most are produced in limited editions.
Donna's new lighting collection Parlour Lighting was launched at Clerkenwell Design Week last May. Since then the lighting collection has been selected for several high profile exhibitions, including 'Vernacular' at Tent London in September 2013. The products have also been featured in many interiors features including Wallpaper*, the Guardian Weekend, CRAFTS magazine and the RIBA Journal.
