Designer Lighting by Joost Van Bleiswijk
Meet The Designer | Joost Van Bleiswijk
Joost van Bleiswijk was born in Delft and graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2011. Joost has developed unique construction methods to create products with an everlasting and timeless image. His Construction Lamp collection for Dutch design label Moooi is inspired by the endless construction combinations of tools and bolts after playing with industrial construction materials in his creative workshop.
Craftsmanship and traditional techniques are at the forefront of Joost van Bleiswijk aesthetic. Creating contemporary objects that tell a story, Joost believes that “design is not a democracy” and instead of following trends, he draws inspiration from historical archetypes. In his opinion “an hourglass or a pendulum clock has a more narrative quality than today’s modern electric devices.” Coveted by art collectors, Joost van Beliswijk’s collection of works are internationally exhibited in some of the world’s most influential galleries and museums including Design Museum Holon Israel, Moss Gallery New York, Galerie Vivid Rotterdam and Zuiderzee Museum in The Netherlands.
