art . object . installations
... three words which are the subset of our website. It's wide, yes - but we do not really want to set limits to what we want to do or how far we want go. We are three widely different people and that is exactly what we see as one of our greatest strengths. For us its important to have fun, be excited, be able to excite each other and others who fall in love with our unique works.

Creating an object is joy. The creative process is vitality. Holding a pencil a tube of paint color or a ruler in my hand makes me smile. The scent - and the feeling of an exclusive piece of paper - is like oxygen to my body. Seeing a piece of hard metal worked to a beautiful soft shape with an elegant surface you just have to touch is like a gift. Being the one who works with all these items is a privilege and like being in a dream. It is my dream. And it is my reality!
This is how we work...
I have been working with light for many years, and I am fascinated by the immense possibilities that lie in playing with light. I'm curious to see how we can use light to create ambience and experiences that are surprising. The starting point is often a skewed angle of relationship between light, space, materials, shapes and human behavior. Many people perceive light as something functional, something that just helps us to see objects and determained to see the shape of an object. And that is a fact - but light can be much more. The dim light on a surface, a reflexion or the use of colored lights can give life to otherwise passive objects. Being able to work dedicated with unique lighting solutions is a gift, but also a personal challenge.

For many years I have produced custom made objects for both private people and businesses - I work from the first idea till the product is completely finished. I have an education within industrial design as well ad the hard-core craft education and I have had my workshop for a long time now. Over time, I have played with many different materials - and although I know exactly how far the different materials can be processed, I'm still curious and experimental and constantly looking for new boundaries. I work as a performing artist - sculptures, paintings... and have some exhibitions behind me.
We are fascinated be the mystery of light. Our aspiration is to explore and challenge our own insight of how light can change perception of space and object.
In our process, we might do crazy things, so don't be afraid to say "I don't like it" or "I don't understand it". We may not either!
We do not work based on a set of drawings and calculations. Our process starts and ends in our studio – we call it a basecamp for creativity – where we can play with shapes, materials, surfaces and everything between light and shadow.
