"The reuse and recycling of materials to create modern, ethically responsible objects became an important trend within British design in the 1980s. Deborah Thomas's "Northern Fleet" chandelier, which is constructed from shards of broken glass, is a spectacular example of this movement. 'Skip Culture', as it became known, was perhaps most famously embodied in the work of Ron Arad and of Creative Salvage - the collective of Tom Dixon, Mark Brazier Jones, Nick Jones and later Andre Dubreuil. As the Creative Salvage manifesto of 1983 stated, 'The key to Creative Salvage's success does not lie in the expensive research and development costs of modern day products. But in the recycling of scrap to form stylish and functional artefacts for home and office'". (V & A Museum London)
