Kyla is a multi-disciplinary designer and founder of the Foldability design studio in London. Scottish by origin, Kyla studied at the prestigious Glasgow School of Art with terms abroad in Milan and Cologne. Kyla’s projects include interior design, set design and large-scale retail window displays. In recent years, Kyla has developed a variety of techniques for folding labile materials such as paper and fabric, as well as rigid substrates such as metal and laminate.
Most of Kyla’s designs have the appearance of a one-off, but her precision-formed products, such as the spectacular Fold pendant lamp and the Case cushion series she designed for Northern, can be made in multiples. Elegant, playful and spontaneous in equal measures, Kyla’s designs always surprise and delight.
