Les Bouées de Bois is a project in collaboration with 'La Cristallerie Saint Louis' in partnership with Design Academy Eindhoven.  During the visit of the Saint-Louis factory she got inspired by the way the crystal is turned. Based on that, she started sketching round shapes and got reminded of drops of water. By hanging those 'drops' on a rope Nienke got into the nautical theme. Slowly her project evolved into a lantern that feels like it floats on the water like a buoy. The beautiful 'royal blue' crystal reminds her of the moon reflecting on the sea at night and should be your beacon of light in the dark.  Photos by Esmee Jacobs   https://www.saint-louis.com/
