Amber Dewaele

Belgium

Amber Dewaele is an Antwerp-based furniture and product designer. Born in 1997, her portrait reflects a young but fearless woman ready to rethink the visual object world through her own playfull lens. Amber recently graduated from the Thomas More Hogeschool, where she was taught the arts and crafts of furniture design. Combined with her preceding studies in industrial product design, she has a perfectly balanced portfolio between functionality and creativity. When taking a step back to better understand her, one rapidly realizes that she seeks the simplicity in the boundless complexity, both in form and function.

Her ideas germinate from a certain philosophy, material or production process. From rough idea generation up to decisive implementation, functionality is the common thread throughout the process. This common thread defines the artistic approach to a functional yet poetic end product. Her creations have been known to evoke specific emotions, trigger feelings and make people wonder. Although very mature, Amber never abandoned her inner child, to whom she still listens when in search for abundant inspiration. It provides her with a rich source of inspiration. "Playfulness" is therefore often reflected in her designs. The Sunset Wall Light is part of the Atmosphere Collection. It is a collection based on beautiful optical phenomena resulting from the interaction between light and atmosphere. The design is inspired by the sun setting in the sea, which creates a warm glow in the sky. It is a moment to which we can all associate a certain memory. In this way the lamp manages to arouse certain warm feelings and evoke specific memories.
