dutch designer renate vos weaves various materials together to bring her to life. the ‘concrete lamp’ fuses silicone rubber and cement –
the jagged meeting point of the two contrasting mediums celebrating the fusion of soft and hard. a soft glow permeates the rubber-like fringe and
heavy duty steel wire suspends the mass.
