Phay Halsackda is from Laos, and came to England at the age of 8. She studied at The Royal School of Needlework where she learned traditional skills such as embroidery and worked on the tapestries at Hampton Court. Phay has designed and produced her own range of contemporary lighting pendants for many years for retail outlets like Purves & Purves. In her spare time she is also a singer songwriter.
As Innermost's first full time in-house designer, Phay has had input into most of the product ranges over the years. To relax from the fast pace of development at Innermost, she likes to wind down practicing martial arts at the Shaolin Temple in London!
