Pendants from Erwin Zwiers


Studio Erwin Zwiers have introduced a new series of lamps, ‘Twisted Lights’. The inspiration for the ‘Twisted Lights’ comes from the material used, namely bend plywood.

This type of plywood is perfect to bend, when it’s properly processed, so the forming capabilities are endless. The flexibility of the material invites to make organic forms. The lamp is built from an initial shape, which is the top of the lamp.

Against this top bend plywood is wrapped, so that during the construction of the lamp it will grow step by step. During this process the lamps are created. In advance it can not be determined what form eventually will come out.

Erwin Zwiers was born 1983 Castricum, the Netherlands. He studied 3D design at HKU School of product design Utrecht and then Wood and Furniture College Amsterdam, department furniture making, finished in 2005.

I love the look and shape of the pendants. The series consists of lamps that are all unique for itself. Each lamp is handmade which makes no lamp the same.  The uniqueness of the ‘Twisted Lights’ is that it’s a combination between an object and an utensil.

Through its shape, in all its versatility, it’s an attractive object to watch. However, when the lights go on, the functional nature of the lamp will be revealed which is a beautiful lamp that gives pretty and warm lighting.
