For Dutch duo VANTOT, it’s all in the name. Literally translated from Dutch to mean ‘from to’, VANTOT focuses on the entire process, starting with a technique and ending with the product. The pair strives to find new applications for innovations in everyday life, and it’s not only new-found technologies which have seized their interest. Serving as a guiding light in the duo’s work, antiquated techniques are put to good use in modern day outlets, mutually benefiting from today’s updated knowledge base.

Current Currents

2017

 

Electric current is often perceived as something frightening, but what would it be like if low voltage would be the new normal? Would we still be afraid to touch it? How can we implement electric components as part of the design, instead of hiding them? These are just some of the questions that VANTOT used as a guiding light while designing their new collection Current Currents.


Polar Play

2016

 

Polar Play explores the possibility to shape conductivity. Why use wires to connect lighting? The whole object conducts electricity and supplies 10 LEDs without a wire.


Passage Table

2016


Yes its here! Finally our Passage Table got itself into the spotlight.

A solid and bold metal framing covered with graphical inlayed wooden tabletop.

Also available in plain white Oak.


Lunar Wall Light

2016


Delicate lighting on the wall. Lunar, part of the Exploded View pendant series is now also available as wall lighting object. It has the same quality LED's, designed, developed and produced with our LED supplier.


Reverberate

2015


Reverberate, a large jacquard woven acoustical wallhanging.

How does the eye interpret multiple layered mathematical patterns? 

 


Limpid Lights

2015

New additions to the family. 

Limpid Lights continues on the principle of manipulating the light by moving the lightsource. The fresh and bright light of LED can be manually masked with various handblown glass shades. In this way the light can be playfully adapted to a more fuzzy, hazy, smoky, dusky, foggy, blurry and or coloured light.


Passage Plateau

2015

Passage Plateau, derived from the project Passage, is now featured in a new jacket. The wood inlayed patterns come in three different colours: Brown, Green/Blue and Black. The top is treated with a satin gloss coating.  Passage Plateau is a multi-purpose product. It functions well for serving food or drinks as for decorative purposes.

EXHBITION - 'New Icons'  2017 Kazerne, Eindhoven   Who are the design innovators in 2017? If Rietveld would still be alive, what would he make now? Would he be called Maarten Baas? Jelle Mastenbroek, Jella Lena van Eck, or different? The Kazerne is interested to hear your thoughts! In 2017, the Netherlands celebrates 100 years De Stijl. With a large exhibition, Kazerne joins the theme year Mondriaan to Dutch Design. The interest of the podium for design surpasses the straight lines and primary colours of De Stijl. The focus is on content: the blending between form and function, and the search for a universal language to interprete the contemporary society. Together with the designers and the audience, Kazerne tries to pierce through the zeitgeist, and to predict which designers will survive the ravages of time.

SOLO EXHBITION - 'Current/Curents'  2017 Ventura Lambrate, Milan Be Invited!

In the solo exhibition 'Current Currents' Vantot explores the possibilities and advantages of Low Voltage. Electrical current is still perceived as something frightening. But what would it be like if Low Voltage would be the new normal? VANTOT experiments with shaping conductivity as innovative interior objects and ornaments instead of putting it away.

Ongoing Collaboration - Envisions 2017 Eindhoven Envisions is a Dutch collective that showcases everything but the end product. The collection of work aims to offer new insights to different phases that would normally never be seen by the public’s eye. By revealing the steps of the extensive research process that precedes a design’s final outcome, the collection breathes life into initial concepts and pushes them towards reality.  Transcending the fear of copycats, the exhibitors reveal more about their work – and themselves – to the public. By doing so, a climate for interaction and exchange is created. The setup is intended to trigger a dialogue between designers, clients and manufacturers, who are encouraged to approach each project as a collaborator. By crowdsourcing ideas, Envisions allows for unexpected developments in the making process and ultimately gives rise to new-found joint ventures.   Exhibition:  During Salone Del Mobile Milano 2017 we presented the outcome of a research for new possibilities in the world of sheetmaterial.
