Construction and materials are David Derksen’s main sources of inspiration. He creates something new through unconventional applications. While the designs are not strictly functional, their appearances are directly connected to their construction. In this way he aims to express the beauty of the material and the way it is produced. These ‘Copper Lights’ completely constructed out of0,1 millimetrethick copper foil. The bends in the material give the structure its stiffness and almost a paper like appearance.
