Atmospheric light from Hanging lamp Ties

This hanging lamp was designed by Ties Westerhuis and completely made up of laser-cut plates MDF 3 mm thick. The modular parts of the Ties lamp have been cut very precisely by the experts of CRE8, so that the parts slide together nicely. You can build the lamp without glue or screws and you can arrange it according to your own insight. The way in which the pictures are grouped determines the atmosphere of this CRE8 hanging lamp. After all, the pictures break the light, creating a beautiful warm glow or direct light. This unique hanging lamp creates its own atmosphere above the dining table or in the seating area.

Design by Ties Westerhuis

Ties Westerhuis is an industrial designer and works for the Ties hanging lamp with CRE8 social venture from Amsterdam. This company wants to bring together clients, buyers and young people from Amsterdam who are disadvantaged in the labour market. Artisans transfer their knowledge and enthusiasm via a work-based trajectory with digital production techniques such as 3D printing and laser cutting. Ties Westerhuis has a special interest in innovative and environmentally-saving production processes. The Ties hanging lamp from CRE8 is an example of this. The 3D-printed material is modelled by a laser cutter. As a result, no residual waste was generated in the production of these design lamps.

Use the suitable light source

The modular structure of the Ties hanging lamp gives the possibility to create a unique lamp, from an attractive broad to intimate cubic (37 x 37 x 37 cm). So give yourself creative freedom by playing with the shape of the lampshade! Bear in mind that not every lamp is suitable for this construction. For the Ties of CRE8, therefore, use a lamp with a small fitting (E14) and a diameter of 42 mm at most. Think of a Philips Master PL-Electronic 8 or 11-watt energy saving light stick (depending on the desired light intensity) or the Philips CorePro LEDcandle 5.5 watt LED light candle. We do not recommend the use of special lamps such as halogen or 12 V lamps, because they become very hot. The Ties Hanging lamp is made of light brown MDF, but can of course also be sprayed in colour as desired. Excellent design and every time unique in atmosphere and light!

CRE8 - a social venture

CRE8 social venture wants to be meaningful for everyone within the local environment: for clients and buyers, but also for less visible groups such as the group of young people in Amsterdam who are in social disadvantage. At CRE8 social venture, they learn to discover their interests and are given the opportunity to develop under guidance. CRE8 trains these young people until they can operate machines such as 3D printers and laser cutters themselves. Moreover, they get the chance to develop their creativity and talents.

The vision of CRE8 on new crafts

The use of digital production techniques such as 3D printing and laser cutting is increasing. These developments lead to new professions, at the interface of virtual and physical reality: the new crafts of the 21st century. Digital manual work is converted by the machine into tangible results, in small series or as unique items. The techniques take up little space, result in little or no waste and can, therefore, be used in the middle of the city, in short: Urban Fabrication!
