Sarah Dehandschutter has been designing lamps since 1996. The experience she gatherd exploring different techniques and materials led to the creation of more and more complex forms that could have hardly been designed on paper, resulting directly from the properties of the material. These fluent assymetric forms look diffrent from every point of view, suggesting ongoing movement. It is this exploration of lightness and movement in combination with the light effects that are her chief source of inspiration.
Hand curved iron rods have always been the basis of Dehandschutter’s work. Cloth stretched to its extremes over bended rods is the basis of light sculptures with a natural elegance. This gracious collection of lamps has a unique streamlined character as it is a result of the tension of the streched cloth.
While she remains producing unique pieces tailored to benefit the interior of the client, the focus is now more design orientaited.
