Northern Irish artist and designer Rachel O’Neill works at the interface between art and design using a variety of tactile materials to create wonderfully playful one-off installations and limited edition pieces for corporate and private interiors and special events. Taking much of her inspiration from the magnificent sea and landscapes of her native Ireland, Rachel O’Neill’s objects have a fluid, often amorphous visual quality redefining their purpose and shapes whether they are used as decorative lighting, wall and floor coverings, body adornment or children’s toys.
In keeping with the deep-rooted crafts heritage of a rural society Rachel loves working with her hands enjoying the challenge of transforming heavy-duty industrial textiles and fabrics into magically beautiful commissioned works of art or affordable design products.

After graduating in 2005 from the University of Ulster’s School of Art and Design with the idea of creating lighting sculptures and chandeliers with the material Velcro, Rachel has travelled the world producing work for an international client base from Belfast to New York creating commissions for private homes and commercial ventures such as restaurants and galleries. Rachel has created massive installations for Peugeot’s Flagship showrooms in both Paris and Berlin while also producing pieces for New York’s luxury 5th Avenue Store, Bergdorf Goodman. Read Less
