“If you’re an architect, your world is a building, a graphic designer works on a newspaper or a wall, while a landscape architect plays with nature itself. I try and draw all these worlds together and see what happens when they meet.”
Top product designer Studio Molen is well known for its monumental bronze lighting sculptures, which, inspired by city lights and the night sky, visualize a vision of a future city. These art sculptures, and many other projects of Studio Molen, have been acquired by art collectors worldwide and shown at international art fairs and exhibitions.
