Dutch Invertuals in collaboration with Luxaflex | Dutch Design Week 2017

Dutch Invertuals collaborated with the iconic Luxaflex® brand to explore light in new forms. Six designers share their visions, going beyond the obvious.

The collective’s distinctive approach, based on research and experiment, will give a refreshing and poetic insight into the role of light in our future living environments. Their explorations move, shine and glow, providing the audience with new insights into aesthetics, experiences and usability’s to come. By reflecting on these perspectives, the Invertuals reconsider light and its relationship with products designed by Luxaflex.

“When light passes through a translucent volume, it casts an array of reflections and shadows, creating a mesmerising effect.”

“Approaching something known as a raw material can give shape to unfamiliar and speculative results.”
