Introduction to wooden lighting fixtures
What began as a system for spatial art has ultimately become a perfectly functioning wooden system for spatial applications, with a focus on lighting. From a distance, the designs may appear industrial, but up close, the craftsmanship and artistry are clearly visible.
Despite the sleek design, you will clearly be able to discover the wood grain, as well as the refinement and subtle character of the lamps. Sustainable, natural, local, creative, and infinitely flexible - all of this is done in our own workshop in The Hague.
New possibilities and designs with this spatial system are rapidly following, which means we always have lighting that is suitable for every application in any interior.
Spatial, modular, transformable. Just some words to describe the works of Arend Groosman. Since 2004, Arend has been paving the way to his very own world. By studying and designing construction systems meticulously, he has created a spatial, modular and transformable system with a vast array of applications.
Arend’s latest project, 24mm, is the perfect example of this multi-functional construction system. Lamps, furniture, spatial constructions and even entire spaces can be formed with this unrivalled system. 24mm thanks its name to the unit of measurement used for measuring the laths that make up the system’s construction.
Arend Groosman (1983) has always been fascinated by shapes, systems and architecture. Heavy experimentation with all kinds of shapes and materials, in search of new and innovative construction systems, constitute the main theme throughout his work.
Arend’s projects have a playful undertone, but they also refer to a certain sense of unease when it comes to living in today’s dynamic and rapidly changing society. Therefore, sustainability and transformation are important incentives to generate new insights. With his works, Arend is trying to find a way out of existing systems by creating his own, both artistically and metaphorically.
With this utopian ideal in mind transformable and mobile projects come to life which form the foundation of the creation of an independent, constantly changing and ever-expanding universe. From construction and experimental shapes to spatial installations, from utensils to furniture. All of these are part of Arend’s very own spatial and transformable reality.
