Imagine a concept where you can combine small glass bulb lamps with over 200 colors of velvet to create textile wall hangings. This wonderful tool gives direction to the kind of atmosphere and experience that is aimed for in any space. From calming to activating, from subtle to theatrical, from colorful to subdued. Together with the appeal of the little lamps and the material this light object offers a wide range of possibilities.
ORIGIN AND FLYING START
It all started with my vision on a children’s hospital ward. I envisioned hangings with beautiful integrated little lights that would give some comfort and reassurance during the night. To create an example of what a WALL LIGHT [originally called Laplamp in Dutch] could do I made a series of 5 extremely different floor to ceiling objects for my very first exhibition at Design Gallery Yksi in Eindhoven. One of them was immediately acquired by the TextielMuseum as part of their collection. Another published in my first and exclusive shoot for Elle Decoration.

CONCEPT AND BACKGROUND
It was the beginning of a very rewarding concept that is still evolving. In the small version there is choice from over 10 different colors of mini lightbulbs transparent and mother of pearl, matted or shiny, uni or mixed, combined with the 100% bio coton velvets of A House of Happiness.
In the large version you can choose from seven colors of unbreakable LED bulbs and a variation of mat, transparent, warm and cold white light. Its most amazing quality still is the way a single well-chosen WALL LIGHT in Large or Small transforms a room and creates the perfect kind of atmosphere in any space.
Since then it is adorning many homes and public spaces, businesses, care centers, shops, waiting rooms and the occasional art centers and museums. The most impressive ones to me are a threesome designed for an award-winning wine bar in New York and an orange one in the stairwell of a home, both about 5 meters high and fitted with 100 lamps each.

WALL LIGHTS Large and other developments

Its most amazing quality still is the way a single well-chosen WALL LIGHT in Large or Small transforms a room and creates the perfect kind of atmosphere in any space.
All WALL LIGHTS are extremely low in the use of energy and bulbs can be replaced at any height with a hoist.
The next development will be WALL LIGHTS with integrated light tubes in various colors. The tubes are horizontaly or verticaly woven through the velvet as it were. Want to see whats next? Then leave your name and email below and I will keep you posted.
