Sophisticato Hanging Lamp

Designer/Brand

Serax

The Sofisticato collection combines brutalism with refined elegance. The collection owes its raw, timeless beauty to the minimalist design and the frequent use of blue steel. Or as Koen Van Guijze describes it: “A straightforward material, fashioned by human hands, not spat out by a machine.” Every single part is manually milled, turned, sawn, drilled, and welded by craftsmen. Then the steel is heated and carefully polished by hand. This procedure makes the steel rust-resistant, in addition to giving it its characteristic blue glow.

All luminaires in the collection can be perfectly combined, and the brass Sofisticato Wall Light 170 and Wall Light 340 provide an original, contrasting touch.

Profile

Koen Van Guijze: "I have been running my own lighting business for years, but there is still so much creativity in my head, just screaming for a way out. It has eagerly found its way into this lighting collection. And that ... is just the beginning."

He prefers 'authentic' materials such as steel, brass, concrete, cork, ceramics, sand and paper. His style is a mixture of brutalism and sophisticated details. Or as he himself says: "There is poetry in everything I design."
