Profiles is a series of six unique lamps commissioned by gallery Caroline van Hoek as a scenographic ensemble to highlight its contemporary jewellery collection on international fairs such as Design Miami/ Basel.
It is designed to become an alternative to the lighting systems provided on such fairs and allow the gallery to become independent on both aesthetic and functional aspects of its booth.
Each lamp is made from different steel profile sections subtly assembled together to create minimalistic combinations that aim to mend with the identity of the gallery as well as to light up intensely the artists works without dazzling visitors.
