‘The Party’ is inspired by a clan of strong, captivating personalities. Their casted ceramic faces bring to light our fascination with secrets, family dynamics and intrigue.
If seen together, as a splendid party, they brighten up the stage with their cool playfulness.
Yet behind the lamps’ composed façades a mischievous side seeps through and touches our imagination.
The characters that join The Party each have an intriguing story that connects them. Fragments of their personalities appeal to our own hidden side, stimulating recognition, interest and curiosity.

After graduating at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2004 both Kranen and Gille, who found recognition in each other’s work, initially went their own way. When the two met again in 2006 they started working on a project to be shown at 2007’s Salone Del Mobile in Milan “The Von Trapp Dining Room” a series of products inspired on Tiroler volkskunst. After this presentation Kranen/Gille came to life as a studio, working on follow up projects to be shown at fairs such as Design Miami and PAD London. As time passed Kranen/Gille started working more and more with consumer brands, realising accessible products in order to spread their vision on aesthetics. Kranen/Gille products mostly start their existence as scrapheap sketches in order to keep an open eye on the product itself. Working in this way enables Kranen and Gille to design freely before products end up in CAD programs, a feature that we hope one can feel when looking at a Kranen/Gille product.
