When my former daughter is born, children books returned; when leafing through one of them, I saw a beautiful stylised forest.
I look. I saw. I closed book and eyes. I created a ceiling chandelier: Namu (in Korean, tree). From that, I learned that our surrounding real world is fantastic as the things we can create.
Tree, clouds, rain…
We are surrounded by many things, we consider trivial: we are so used to have them in front of us, that we do not see them anymore, and those things lose any meaning. After that experience, the tree-chandelier, I take a lot of time to look at any surrounding shape: what could they become if…? And thinking it smaller? Or giant?
Lighting design: enlightening me on the real nature of the things, lighting the space of their users. Transformations of the nature, turned into lamp by chance.
Design in polypropylene,poor material mouldable into shapes imitating nature.
