“...mathematical infinity” - Marc de Groot -           

The FRACTAL, standing fixture

In mathematics a fractal is an abstract shape that repeats itself, the FRACTAL is created by repeating the hexagon shape in different ways. All lines of the FRACTAL lead to the core, from this source the light emits into the space.

Marc de Groot’s work focuses on simplicity, craftsmanship and keeping an eye for detail, without losing functional aspects of the product. Function, Form and Ergonomics are inseparable in our design and therefore an authentic signature.

Beehive


"Touching the essence of the honey comb"

for the Beehive lamp,

Marc de Groot used the fascinating structure of the honeycomb as a starting point.

The structure of the honeycomb, which Darwin in 1859 already designated absolutely perfect, appears to be a unique base for light.

It creates a new vision on the use of the honeycomb structure. This beautiful combination of form and function creates the Beehive natural light. It has a sophisticated balance in light and shade.

Mathematical elements are the essence of beautiful light

"If you touch the mathematical elements in a design, natural beauty appears"

Helix Light

The idea to realise beauty through mathematical calculation is not a new one. Even Leonardo da Vinci tried to decode the secret of harmonious composition with his so called, “Golden Ratio”. Following in his footsteps, the Dutch designer Marc de Groot adopted a formula first conceived by the medieval mathematician Fibonacci when crafting his Helix Light. The geometric lamp shade distributes its warm glow not only downwards, but also laterally by way of the minute gaps between each of the brushed brass plates. This fascinating union of the scientific and the creative produces an awe-inspiring effect.

Helix

The Helix uses just one basic geometric form and an ingenious enigmatic pattern to create an innovated and beautiful modern form referring to the classic industrial lights. A unique design of the Helix originates of a mathematical theory by Fibonacci. Marc was able to create natural beauty out of simplicity and a natural pattern.

Glow

An intelligent lamp  which can be introduced to modern and traditional interiors. It is stretched by an ingenious arc construction of RVS feather steel and a bilateral superstretch substance creating a strong, very graphic and open picture. The Glow is extremely suitable for small and larger dia meters. By its lightness and open construction the Glow L and XL creates a powerful yet subtle presence in the room. Winner of the 100% Designprijs Rotterdam in 2006.

HiLow Light

An elegant appearance with an amazing functionality. This particular wall lighting derives its name from the fact that the light source can be allocated with a movable cover plate. The coverplate can adjust the light source slightly upwards or downwards for a smooth functional work light or as decorative environmental lighting.
