Create your own composition

Pendant lamp ANDY and BENDY originated from the intermediate posts that were part of fencing. The end result of this design is a lamp that you can hang in any space and use to light up any room. The lamp can be combined in multiple ways. You can hang ANDY or BENDY alone, together, and even create your own composition of individual elements and choose for example a triple. These pendant lamps are designed with a durable LED lamp and are made from premium quality, high-quality material that is guaranteed to last for many years.

A longer and better life

Tolhuijs designs with a reverse approach. They are a design company that would never create one product and then add materials to it as most other design companies do. The beginning of any design is determined by which objects and materials are available. The design is based on the material and production options, resulting in an interesting and recognizable product for the customer. Tolhuijs’ style is characterized as honest, tough and simple. The materials are visible, besides painting nothing is obscured.

Before being included in the collection, products had a completely different purpose and were ready for scrap. Tolhuijs ensures that these materials have a longer and better life.

Bastiaan Tolhuijs:

“Above all, the product should look good. This way you automatically get the sustainable story in people’s living rooms. A sustainable ‘Trojan horse’.“

Socially responsible production

The production of their range is done as much as possible in social workingplace and prisons. Tolhuijs: “We want to expand the possibilities for these people who are disconnected from the labor market to be able to reintegrate and be upgraded in our society.”

Waste material has a purpose

At Tolhuijs they want to show that waste can also be a raw material. For example, they try to make factories and consumers more aware of the benefits of using products that might be considered waste by trying to be creative and using them for other purposes. So much so that you’ll want to have it in your living room.
