Whoever sets eyes on the Meshmatics Chandelier will never guess what hides behind its sophisticated exterior… Inspired, Rick Tegelaar elevates the nature of humble wire netting by developing a machine and set of tools to model it with accuracy.
The full potential of this thin and flexible material is then stretched and captured within three layers of beauty. The clever wire mesh structure reflects and diffuses the light of the integrated LED with poetic grace, contributing to keep the light source cool by absorbing some of its heat
The Meshmatics Chandelier reveals the full potential of wire netting, which is ingeniously stretched and moulded into three layers. Its wire mesh structure reflects and diffuses light.

Rick Tegelaar (Rotterdam, 1986) graduated with honours from the ArtEZ Arnhem product design department in 2011. Since then he works independently from his studio and workshop in Arnhem. Rick Tegelaar likes to work with undervalued materials such as wire mesh and waste wood. By re-examining these materials, new applications of the materials arise. The challenge lies in finding new forms, qualities and aesthetics as opposed to those with which we are all too familiar.
