Alexandra Izeboud joins the exhibition with an ultra-slim and minimalistic Offset Bookcases and her industrial yet intimate Sunlight wall lamp. A world of curves and 5 colors with an industrial yet elegant appearance is what the table lamp Trouvé by Cohors represents.

Freshly graduated Sjang Niederwieser, from Maastricht Institute of Arts, is bringing together craftsmanship and technology in his Volare silk light objects: handcrafted knitted cylinders of pure silk over a 3D printed shape.

With sustainable handcraft and slow design, the Mycelium collection by LI–AN–LO gives a contemporary play on geometry and scale, three unique side tables with a monolithic base of pine wood combined with the tempered glass-top. Unique is also the limited collection Aluminimum 2020, with which Bhulls Studio aims to generate a new minimalism through interaction between materials and light, and the latests works of Spinzi Design, Meccano Collection, Medusa and Planar Tables, influenced by the automotive and fashion industries, great passions of the founder Tommaso Spinzi.
The eye catching Gridpit and Firepit by Lennart Lauren stand out with their geometric appearance. What’s even more impressive, is their recyclability rate being respectively 95% and 99%. Another design made with a sustainable ethos is the Melede side table by Bock Studio, blending Scandinavian simplicity, the traditional use of timber and new sustainable materials, creating a natural and light aesthetic.
