Koen Van Guijze: “If you can write poetry with light, then you’ve got a real story.”
In Koen Van Guijze's KVG Essentials lighting collection resounds a clear echo of his love for brutalism and minimalism with a conceptual vibe. As the name suggests, with this collection the Antwerp designer reverts to the sheer essence. The featureless surfaces, straightforward spatial figures, and simple elements allow you to create an infinite number of effects, both with the bulbs and with interplay of light and shadow.
Koen Van Guijze's favourite materials are also apparent in this collection: steel, brass, wood, and marble are used in various combinations. The colours are always sober and natural; the poetry is created when you start playing with light and reflection. The elementary design encourages you to put your own stamp on the atmosphere by adjusting the size and shape of the LEDs. Thanks to the many combination possibilities, you can design new structures with multiple lamps. All this not only makes Koen Van Guijze's lighting collection for Serax fit into both small and large spaces, but also with every concept.
