Rody Graumauns (b. 1968), Netherlands.

About Rody Graumauns:

Rody Graumans (Dutch, born 1968) is a leading Dutch product designer & wonder boy who became an overnight star designer after he introduced his iconic Droog 85 Lamps Chandelier, available from Stardust. The Dutch designer Rody Grauman was educated at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht and later at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Despite his young age Rody Graumans has already produced a true design classic: The 85 pendant lamp which can be found today in the permanent design collection of MoMA in New York. Rody Graumans has that little extra something; a quality that eludes description: Rody has a certain je ne sais quoi.

Rody Graumauns Design:

Contemporary Dutch designers such as Rody Graumans have been distinctly innovative in their experimentation with materials. As an example of this trend, Rody Graumans employed simple, readily available components of eighty-five black electrical cords, sockets, and lightbulbs — to create this striking chandelier. Gathered in a unified bundle at the ceiling, the cords flare out to accommodate the mass of bulbs below. This piece was included in Droog Design's first collection. Droog has captured much attention for its stance against consumerism and its use of industrial and recycled materials. The collective initially caught the interest of international critics in 1993 with an exhibition at the Milan Furniture Fair, where founders Gijs Bakker and Renny Ramakers presented work by a number of Dutch designers who share the same, essentially minimalist, approach.
