Description

Designed by Sep Verboom, the hanging “Fan” lamp is made from a reclaimed metal frame that used to be part of a fan. By repurposing discarded materials, Verboom hopes to inspire a more efficient way to handle waste in the Philippines’ Cebu City. The combination of the metal structure with natural rattan – which is woven according to traditional techniques by local craftsmen – gives new life to a structure that would otherwise go to waste. The inclusion of rattan provides a natural element which connects the piece to a rich cultural tradition of weaving workshops. “Fan” is a perfect example of Sep Verboom’s vision, which is not new or oriented towards the spectacular; it is shaped by a no-nonsense aesthetic sensibility and emphasizes simplicity, sustainability and function. He strives to bring production back to its roots, where thinking and collaborating with local people evolves into a better way of living; his ultimate goal is a complete revolution of modern industry. Verboom views the entire environment as a potential source for something innovative, and believes that every existing material, object or craft has the potential to change lives on a large or small scale.

About the designer


Sep Verboom

SEP VERBOOM With his label Livable designer Sep Verboom (°1990, works in Ghent) cooperates with traditional communities in the Philippines, Indonesia and Brazil. Together with local people Verboom creates projects in which crafts, social engagement, design and human contact beautifully merge. As these communities don’t have professional structures the final product is always unique. Beautiful examples are the FAN project (2014) in the Philippines’ Cebu City, for which he recycled the metal structure of fans and combined these with newly made rotan structures in lamps, and the Caro Barro project (2016) in the Brazilian Vale do Jequitinhonha, where he made ceramic vases that combine traditional local techniques with a contemporary design. Line by line Verboom also integrates this knowledge into industries such as Belgian companies Vincent Sheppard, for whom he designed the Aya-collection, and Papilio, for whom he designed the Rope Rugs. Doing so, he wants to realise his final goal: a social, ecological and qualitative revolution of the traditional industries. In 2018 Sep Verboom won the German Recycling Design prize and the Belgian Henry Van de Velde, Young talent Award.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
