Nicolas Erauw graduated from The Royal School of Arts in Ghent with a specialisation in furniture design in 2017. His focus is on finding new ways to combine industrial manufacturing processes and raw materials to create unexpected results.
This lamp is part of the on-going ‘Wax on/Wax off series’. These series is a collection of experiments of lost-wax casting and wax-dipping processes. The wax dipping is done with a self-made machine called TONK. TONK, a machine based on the old technique of candle dipping, was created to explore shapes and forms through a new medium. When combining TONK with the lost wax casting technique, a unique piece is produced every single time.
