MILOU BERGS & EDWIN VAN CAPELLEVEEN

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.

 

Milou Bergs
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.

”We should reconsider how we consume first nature. Humans have seen nature as something submissive, but the tide must turn. In our drive to build a better world, we consume the resources that nature provides and neglect the precious materials that go to waste during the process. All tough there are still a lot of precious qualities hidden in them. These objects are conceived from eggshells, a waste stream of a large industry. Eggs have become a very obvious source of protein and we all know where eggs come from but eggshells go to waste. This forgotten material is now translated into a new tactile material; by doing so hidden qualities are revealed and open opportunities for new, sustainable applications.”
