THE LIGHT CONDUCTORS | GRADUATION PROJECT | 2019
As a product designer, light and colour are the most important aspects in my work, this turned into my fascination for glass. With this fascination, I research the relation between craft and contemporary design. I think it’s important to appreciate traditional crafts and make sure that this knowledge and cultural heritage stays preserved, by developing them and combining traditional- with industrial techniques.
‘’The Light Conductors’’ is a material based research about light, colour and glass. I used this graduation project as a steppingstone for my career as product designer. With ‘’The Light Conductors’’ I created my own material library, which I can use for next couple of years as a starting-point for new product designs.
But what is product design exactly? With my ‘‘Conductors,’’ I explore the boundaries between, product and public space which resulted in a pavilion for Rotterdam Central Station. The sun changes during the day and so are the ‘‘Conductors.’’ I use the sun as a source to create moments of wonder and wellbeing. I enhance the effects of the sun, to show something that is not always noticed, but brings us moments of joy.
