Grafting Light

Modular systems, we love them! That's why the I Love Belgium team has to talk about 'Grafting Light'. Grafting Light is a project by architecture office C.T.A. This office is lead, since 2009, by Nick Ceulemans and Liesbeth Thewissen, who required their experiences in renowned offices such as David Chipperfield, Zaha Hadid and Wiel Arets.

Their first product design is a modular light and furniture system which plays on a fresh interpretation of thirties tube furniture. Nick and Liesbeth's intention? To create clean and modular forms which can be connected, the easiest way possible, to a basic element. This way, several lightning and furniture objects can easily be created. By combining the elements on several ways, the object will adept itself to the space given. Whether you need your desk to be lit or a whole space, Grafting Light will fulfil its promise!

The titles refers to the age-old technique of "grafting" in the artisanal fruit cultivation. Through the possibility of grafting, a horticultural technique whereby tissues from one plant are inserted into those of another so that the two sets of vascular tissues may join together, the owner has the possibility to create an unique piece by grafting several design elements. In other words: more design for your money!
