Metal tubes, beams and profiles, became a primal resource as building elements. This material provides, despite of it’s relatively lightweight characteristic, a capacity of strength and is therefore used consistently as an alternative towards other classic materials. Aiming to change the context of the material itself, few incisions were made by using modern cutting techniques to create functional and surprising home accessories.
The objects are focussing on maintaining the original character of each individual tube. This collection is inspired by and named after Dutch proverbs; short powerful sayings which are passed on for generations, indicating collective wisdom and morality. They describe the objects’ purpose and insinuate a story yet to happen.
Edwin van Capelleveen
Led by his instinct and the behaviour of people Edwin shapes his ideas into understandable projects, ranging from homeaccessories to architectural innovations. He characterizes the simplicity by involving the industry from the start, and use it’s limits as an advantage.
Inspired by architecture, technology, the way things are constructed, work and move, form the basis in Milou’s technical and functional way of working. She is focusing on innovation and smart solutions, shifting from industrial product design into a more conceptual design approach. Her products are shaped with a clear function combined with simplistic aesthetics.
