One typical feature of Japanese lacquerwork is generally black lacquered surface, but nowadays it is much more interesting to use more colors. The word Urushi designates both the lacquer itself and the art of Japanese lacquerwork, which represents a tradition going back thousands of years. The special sheen and visual depth of these lacquer surfaces exert a fascination which has inspired modern designers to apply this technique for themselves. 
With these low table serie designs we pick up the old craft of lacquering, and therefor manufacture this product in Asia.

Flower Pyramids
23 / 07 / 2019

In 1593, no Dutchman had ever seen a tulip. In the 400 years since, the Netherlands has become synonymous with this most beloved of spring flowers. The iconic pyramid vase, is a vase designed to put cut flowers in, but it primarily serves as a decorative showpiece. These pyramids were first made in the Netherlands in the 17th century and were decorated with Delfts blauw or Chinese decoration. But in my opinion such a vase can have a strong powerful shape without the need to decorate. Sometimes the pyramid vases, some perhaps inspired by the porcelain tower of Nanjing , were not used as flower vases at all, but just as showpieces. My concept of this new Pyramid vase consists of fewer components held on a five legged base; we designed 3 stackable shapes with two identical ones on the top.  A real showpiece. Flowers can be put in each of the fifteen spouts, but without tulips, this imposing 140 cm high flower pyramid can be a unique showpiece too!

Villa Empain
20 / 06 / 2019

This building is certainly one of the most beautiful architectural masterpieces of Art Deco in Brussels. In 1930, at the age of 21, Baron Louis Empain had this private mansion of 2500 square meters built, on the prestigious Franklin Roosevelt Avenue. This splendid mansion was designed by the Swiss architect Michel Polak. Dutch interior magazine ‘Eigen huis & Interieur’ created a design special for their summer edition 2019 with products from several dutch designers. Amazing to see how well my Yukiko floor lamp, designed in 2015, fitted so well in the Art Deco environment of Villa Empain. A modern lamp with an old soul.

Wally, a cartoonish ceramic tablelight
05 / 04 / 2019

Most of our design projects are commissioned. But sometimes we feel the urge to create something by ourselves because we simply want to. In our previous project we were creating hexagon shaped tiles. The shade, lines and reflection on these tiles made us realize that we could use this concept for a light object . Primary linear forms do very well especially when the reflected light reveals the beauty of a shape.  In this case an odd but charming looking  ceramic table light. Wally will be introduced bij Cor Unum this coming year in 2019. Welcome, Wally!
