The Eindhoven-based studio was set up by Tineke Beunders and Nathan Wierink in 2008 after they graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven. Since then, they have created furniture such as Marbelous, a wooden table with fully functioning kugelbahns or marble runs in place of conventional table legs; Birdcage, a dangling armchair hung from the ceiling for humans to nest in; and now Light Forest, a series of lights that crawl across walls and ceilings for &tradition.
A product like Light Forest also poses a clever solution to the ever-occurring problem of electrical points not being found in convenient places. “It is poetic and functional at the same time,” says Beunders, perfectly reflecting the studio’s philosophy. Light Forest was originally inspired by the peace and stillness found in the old forests of Europe. “We have cycled all over Europe, to the Sahara-like deserts of inland Spain and to the parts of the Schwarzwald that are like rain-forests,” says Wierink. “If you venture off the beaten track, you can spend a lot of time without seeing other people. It gives you perspective. It is like being in a fairytale.”
