Lauren Van Driessche’s Light
From an original birthday gift for her partner to a collection of mood lamps. Terra Light, by Lauren Van Driessche, is born out of love with a dash of functionality and has grown into a playful collection of table and floor lamps that, almost imperceptibly, add that little touch of extra atmosphere. An adjustable sphere resting on an empty cylinder can shine its light in any desired direction. The warm terracotta material and the robust finish provide for an artisanal look, while the white-coloured interior of the sphere creates a beautiful contrast and optimises the reflection of the light in a peculiar way. Terra Light is the first collection that Lauren Van Driessche presents in collaboration with Serax, but she is already musing on an expansion of the terracotta collection.
As an interior architect I always had an affinity with handcrafted objects. I discovered clay as an intriguing medium that allows me to put my conceptual thoughts into reality. The infinite possibilities opposed to the characteristic boundaries make the creation process an inquisitive journey. My work ranges from sculptural pieces to functional tableware with a distinctive design that is always hand-thrown on a potters wheel before being molded.
