Laurence set up Lolo Palazzo following a long-standing desire to design and create industrial lighting and objects through welding in combination with recycled steel. Lolo Palazzo crafts 100% handmade chandeliers, lamps and objects from recycled steel, such as bicycle chains, motor bike parts, perforated metal sheet but also other refuse she found trawling through metal factories, bicycle repair shops and storages throughout the country. At this moment Lolo Palazzo is working on a collection of tables and other objects in line with her ballroom chandelier collection. Classical forms in combination with motorbike chains becoming edgy and elegant pieces of furniture.
Lolo Palazzo started a collaboration with Mademoiselle Cecile, a Dutch label that works with recycled leather. They work together on a collection of lamp shades of recycled steel in combination with leather and lamp bases made of motorbike gears but also different suspension lamps. A part of this collection will be presented at Meesterlijk 2015 from 27th-29th November 2015.
