Johan van Hengel is a furniture and product designer based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Within his work he searches for subtle surprises by redefining form, materials and production techniques or by creating new contexts for familiar objects. His aim is to design simple, elegant and useful products that become relevant additions to the living environment.
30 Degrees is a series of veneer lampshades which use a 30 degree angle to create a continuous wood grain without seam or interruption.
