Award winning Róisín Lafferty is the Founder and Creative Director of Kingston Lafferty Design. From a young age, artistic flare has been Róisín’s talent. Early on she knew that all she wanted to do was work in design and when the time came to study in her chosen field she excelled; achieving a first class honours in Interior Architecture and Furniture Design from Dublin Institute of Technology. She went on to do a Masters in Product and Spatial Design in Kingston University, London, where she was also awarded a first class honours and presented her final project as part of renowned design exhibition, Tent, London.
Since founding KLD, Róisín has earned enormous respect and recognition across the construction and interiors industry for her contribution to design. Her projects deliver exciting spaces that are based on both client brief and context. For Róisín good design pays particular attention to space – the building itself and its surroundings. As such, her work is not represented through one distinct style, but places the space and the desires of her clients as central.
Róisín takes a holistic approach to her projects, putting human behaviour at the core of her designs. Her primary objective is to create spaces that enhance day to day life for their occupiers, in a manner combining the functional with the aesthetically pleasing.
Above all else, Róisín believes that a space should be an experience. Beyond the mere visual details, a well-designed space should appeal to all senses and take its users on a journey. Roisin’s designs focus on the space – balancing layout, functionality and the wonderfully unexpected.
