One Foot Taller
One Foot Taller was founded by Katty Barac and Will White (who is one-foot-taller than Katty) when they graduated with degrees in Product Design from Glasgow School of Art in 1995. Will later became head of Dyson's Product Innovation before deciding to become a jeweller. Starting out producing furniture as well as lighting, Katty now loves the focus of designing and producing just lighting for interiors, concentrating on timeless decorative lighting for home and commercial settings. The pieces combine elementary modern lines and utilitarian grace and are mostly made in Scotland but some bespoke work is also done in their studio in France where Katty lives with her husband and their two children. One Foot Taller has always believed in matching good design with a clear conscience. Loving elegance, needing fair production and getting excited by things that work well for people is what makes One Foot Taller tick.
