The work Dutch designer Floris Wubben highlights the beauty of nature by giving organic materials a new design perspective.

Studio Floris Wubben creates unique ceramics, mirrors, lighting, and furniture, that are inspired by earthly elements like fire, water, and wood. Wubben uses objects found in nature and uses them to create functional objects in a variety of shapes and colors, that retain a raw and organic character. His lighting designs include the ‘Crystal Twist’, a series of hanging light fixtures made from acrylic stone that have the appearance of being twisted and torn; and ‘Crystal Shift’, sculpted pieces made that are suspended mid-air. Other furniture designs include ‘Stripped’, a standing lamp made from a preserved raw tree branch, and ‘Upside Down’, a chair made from an inverted willow tree trunk that provides stability through branches that are carved and splinted into four legs.
