Arnout Meijer Studio Thanks for the Sun Luminaire $1,670

Arnout Meijer Studio designed the Thanks for the Sun Luminaire in 2013. Made of acrylic glass, LEDs, and custom electronics, this light sculpture measures 55 x 55 x 6 cm. The color temperature of the light emitted can be adjusted between warm yellow-white and cool white. This design is a numbered open edition made to order.


Meijer explains the project like this: “When you think about the design of a luminaire, you design everything except the light. You design the shade, the base, etc. But in the end, you just screw the light in. I wanted to turn that around and start the design process with the qualities of light itself. I worked with the different color temperatures—the change between warm and cool light. The shape is originated from this aspect. On one hand the visual identity of the lamps changes when you adjust the character; on the other you change the atmosphere in the room.”


Amsterdam-based Dutch designer Arnout Meijer’s self-initiated and commissioned work explores perception and light, ranging in practice from public sculpture and architectural interventions to video and product design. He studied Industrial Design at the Technical University Delft and Design Academy Eindhoven; he also studied Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam.


Meijer’s work has been presented at several esteemed institutions and events, including the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Stedelijk Museum, Dutch Design Week, Design Days Dubai, Salone del Mobile, and Villa Noailles, among others. His work has been featured in numerous media outlets, such as Forbes, Frame, T Magazine, ELLE Decoration, Vogue NL, Dezeen, DAMn°, Wallpaper, Wired. He is represented by VIVID in Rotterdam and Victor Hunt in Brussels.
