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.

Thank You For The Sun
‘Thank you for the Sun’ is a Dutch Design Week contribution by VANTOT (Esther Jongsma & Sam van Gurp), Sander Wassink and Job van den Berg. A spot where people come together to shop and relax, encouraging them to consider what will happen when everything related to energy consumption is redesigned.
A warm and lighted spot, sand, deckchairs and parasols turns Thank You For The Sun in a venue where the public can ‘refuel’ in the chilly autumn without having to head out to Spain. ‘Thank you for the Sun’ is a provocative way of getting people to think about energy consumption.

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.

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.
