Vapour Light

A series of lighting elements as waving luminous vapour, which can vary in shape, colour and intensity.The irregular shape found its origin by our fascination for movement of structures in nature and the contrast between straight and organic shapes. The way a flower blooms, how beautifully vapour grows up in the air or the hypnotising effect of rolling water.

These movements we translated into a series of light objects, that can take a surprising appearance. Gracefully, it may take different forms and curves by pulling or twisting the flexible outer shell. By doing this, you can manipulate the shape yourself.

The subtle emission of light appears on the pattern of the luminous bar. The flexible outer shell absorbs the light and glows out on its surrounding as a decorative lighting solution.

The initial series consists out of two colours, two sizes both in a horizontal and vertical version. The transparent shell has a soft feeling like a vapour, were the black version has a more graphical identity.

LED light is implemented in an in house developed light fixture. It is possible to change the intensity of light with the use of a dimmer.

Meet the Creator

Iris van Daalen & Ruben Thier share their fascination for light, reflection, geometric and organic shapes, together with the transience of nature. Over and over, they see it as a challenge to get hold of these phenomena and to abstract and translate them into sustainable designs.

New designs for lighting, furniture, jewelry, home accessories, and unique objects. In addition, they design sustainable and bespoke interiors for companies and private homes, into spaces where you feel at ease.
They combine their sense of aesthetics, intuition and material knowledge with various techniques such as digital modeling and fabrication or traditional craftsmanships to make use of the full potential wherein innovation and elegance come together.

In the course of the years, they gained extensive material knowledge, through research and experiment with materials such as wood, glass, plastics, waste materials and more.

Their fascination and urge to discover can be traced back to their motto; “Don’t take the world for granted.” By consciously deal with the sources, their surroundings and impact, they want to realize sustainable designs to cherish and which will last long.

Iris van Daalen and Ruben Thier both graduated at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2010 and start their studio in the summer of 2011 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
