Light Forest by Ontwerpduo

Wall and ceiling lighting system Light Forest is the brain child of young Dutch design duo Ontwerpduo. The design consists of different parts, which can be connected to ceilings or walls, step by step the lighting system will “grow” across the space with endless possibilities.

It is possible to get only one single lighting point or many more lighting points, wherever you would like to position them. Obstacles or height differences are useful features to install these lights in a beautiful way.

About the Duo:

‘A dreamer and a mathematician’ , this young Dutch design duo complement each other well. The wild fantasy is created, and is then surreptitiously grounded by the mathlete; It’s a philosophy that seems to keep things from going a bit over eccentric, and tends to generate an alluring, yet graspable charm.

Designers Nathan Wierink and Tineke Beunders – both graduated cum laude from the Design Academy in 2008 – just couldn’t wait to get their imaginative paws immersed into the design marketplace. While studying, this duo nurtured the fledgling design studio. The pair make-up a formidable force, and business acumen aside, they admit they just couldn’t delay the fun any longer.
Tineke’s wistful approach blends perfectly with Nathan’s mathematical line of attack, forging a mind challenging ambience that uses simplicity as the key to our affections.
