Vintage plate lights
We always look for those plates which have the quality to make a perfect wall lamp. The collection consists of used plates of various origins. None of them came straight from the factory.
The plates have history and they once stood on a set table. Diverse as they are, they all have special characteristics making them an worthy part of the collection. We have old English plates, classic Maastricht earthenware plates, recognizable ‘boerenbont’ plates and simple whites with silver lining.
In 2004 we designed the lights for the now hugely popular restaurant Praq (then in Ouderkerk ad Amstel, now Zeeburgereiland in Amsterdam). Where we signed for the total design of the identity of the restaurant. The continuous demand for the graceful lamps, made us decide to start a production.
