Richard Hutten is an internationally renowned Dutch designer with a degree in Industrial Design from the Design Academy in Eindhoven. Hutten is an important part of a highly influential generation of designers that emerged in Holland during the 1990s and onwards. In 1991 Hutten started his own design studio, working on a variety of projects with furniture, product, interior and exhibition design. Hutten is known for his subtle and playful approach to design which he is known to have captured in the coin phrase "No Sign of Design".
The Dandelion Pendant. True to its name, Dandelion was initially inspired by the plant the creates the famous and poetic ‘dandelion snow’ of fuzzy, cotton-like seeds when a gush of wind blows on it. The lamp transmits an explosive feeling of energy in motion, reaching towards us from its centre. Striking and pure self-generated energy to lighten up and blow away the heaviness of everyday life. Dandelion is truly a breath of fresh air.
Organic shapes inspired by nature are becoming more and more popular in home design. What makes Richard Hutten's chandelier so flexible is because it does not stand out in essence, and because of its light and ventilation design, it does not add little space or make intimate rooms look crowded. Instead, like dandelions fluttering in the wind, this lamp provides a relaxing lighting solution that breathes fresh air in any space.
