DESIGN INSPIRATION

 

2018 JOENY VELDHUYZEN VAN ZANTEN

 

Joeny’s ‘Cubo’ lamp is a true statement piece. No two ‘Cubos’ are the same, with
their character defined by the swirls, bubbles and imperfections that come
with artisanal, mouth-blown glass. Perfect for ambient lighting, the ‘Cubo’ is
as beautiful ‘on’, as it is ‘off’ – Dutch design and craftsmanship at its best.
Whether you choose the small, medium or large floor or table lamp, or opt for
the pendant version, ‘Cubo’ is an asset to any environment.

Joeny Veldhuyzen van Zanten

In everything we make or do, there comes a point, almost inevitably, where we started taking things for granted, becoming ‘blind’ to the alternatives. We do what we do the way that we do it, because we have become used to what feels familiar. It is precisely these blind spots that Joeny Veldhuyzen van Zanten (1978) seeks out, finding solutions and other ways of approaching both form and function. She redefines tradition, focusing on uniqueness. Originally an art historian, Joeny switched careers, moved to Florence to train as a sculptor and, in 2011, graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam with a degree in ceramics. She subsequently established herself as an independent designer. When Linteloo saw her Cubo lamp design, we immediately felt a strong connection in our mutual approach to the values of design and craftsmanship.
