Free unticketed event

This exhibition is travelling to us from Bornholm in Denmark, “The Craft Island”, which shares designation as a “World Craft Centre” with Kilkenny. It celebrates the invention of the IQ light by Holger Strøm whilst he was working in Kilkenny Design Workshops in 1973.

Since the late sixties, Holger Strøm has worked primarily in the field of corrugated card packaging design.

As well as packaging, he has also designed exhibition systems, furniture and toys, all manufactured from corrugated card, and has worked on the development of parametric CAD systems for box design.

In 1973 Holger designed the now world famous IQlight® system, a self assembly lighting concept made up of interlocking quadrilaterals, making it possible to create lamps of various shapes and sizes only by linking together the identical elements.
