LumiStreet’s compact design embodies the latest LED technology and is the perfect candidate to replace inefficient conventional lighting with energy-saving LED lighting, saving up to 80% in energy usage for street lighting.
LED technology allows for an innovative design, LumiStreet being one of the slimmest and most compact street lighting solutions out there today.

CityCharm is a streetlight that was designed to make a neutral yet elegant fit in its urban context. The design approach, the evolutionary approach, was similar to the Volkswagen Golf. This said it was designed to be the more modern, technologically more advanced successor of the previous mid-range urban streetlight from Philips. The key features of this range (Cordoba and Cone) are customization and light comfort. It is possible to exchange internal cups to allow for more comforted light and several colored filters as additional ambience light effect.

The Seize dining room table tries to break from the obvious manifestation of a table: four legs and a top. Instead the tabletop rests on a legwork that sits at a shallow angle expressing lightness and a strong structural gesture.
Dimensions: 2100 x 940 x 750 mm
Materials: steel core frame, CNC’ed pressed wood, veneer
The initial brief was to develop products out of reclaimed materials that come from train refurbishment done by Dutch train maintenance provider NedTrain. Most of these materials were of high quality and could easily be repurposed in new products. At the same time we decided to tackle the problem of bicycle waste from “orphan bikes” often found around Dutch train stations. From these bikes it is possible to ‘harvest’ parts and repurpose them to build an autoped.
The bike can be rented at the bike rental points near every big railway station in the Netherlands and offers day-tripping tourists or visitors a fun experience to explore town. An autoped is a stress free option which can be used to make the most out of a day going around the city, it being faster than walking yet slower and less ‘final destination focussed’ than cycling.
The bike is produced in Dutch social workshops; these workshops employ physically and mentally handicapped people giving them the opportunity to be a part of the making process.
Status: prototype build in collaboration with NedTrain
